There Is Such a Thing As a Bad Question.
Here I go getting into politics again, but I fell I must. If you live in Massachusetts right now the biggest issue in politics is not the Wall Street meltdown or even the Presidential election but question 1. For those who aren’t aware this is a binding ballot initiative that will remove the state income tax, cutting about 40% out of the budget and leaving the entire state crippled.
Now proponents of the bill are convinced that there is that much squandered spending in the current budget and that all that will change is that the state will simply become more fiscally responsible as a result. The truth of the matter is quite different though. The way things breakdown each city and town will lose 65% of their state aid in addition to massive cuts to their school budgets.
Needless to say this is a terrifying prospect, so if you live in Mass please support the vote no on question 1 campaign and make your self heared on election day.
