The only way to stop this ridiculous taxes that these towns assess because of the overpaid police and city employees is we need a war in this country where everything is destroyed and the politicians all bombed up then ewe can start all over and start assessing at 1970 prices.

Worcester people at least receive something for their taxes. I want you all to think and go for a ride this weekend out to your neighboring towns in the country, go north, go west and take a look around you. Some towns pay up to 10 times what you pay and receive nothing, never have received anything. Look at those towns, you can tell that it was only the people in their free time that did any work, not the state, not the town, just the people for 150 years now. There is no trash pickup, there is only volunteer fire depts still with old equipment, no senior help, nothing some do not even have a store to buy milk.

I think it is time that we all start looking into the CFR part of the states income, there are 2 set of books kept, 2 incomes. One income is not used for the state from what I am finding out. Remember your state is a corporation, they are making money and not showing anyone that income unless you go ask. I must also add this, when they send workers to homes to do this work they should choose wisely as the ones that came out to our town, were the scarey looking and were not let into peoples homes due to that. The census workers were sneaking around peoples propertys also. The town I live in has nothing to offer basically and has not cut back on their costs either due to the recession, not one cent that I have seen and know familys are selling and leaving, the tax rate is too high for them. The health insurance on top of it is a mortgage payment every month, so all in all let us say that is 3 mortgage payments per family each month being paid when no-one can afford them.

To finish here, so you stop your health insurance, it is going up again and then you have to pay tax because you dont have it anymore...but you dont have any health insurance either and must pay out of pocket for all. You dont go to the doctor even if you should because you cant afford to so your health slows you down and things just get worse. You pay for everyones elses including illegal immigrants health needs though. The towns dont cut back they come in for more, as we have all seen and so does the state (fed too). You dont receive anything for these taxes, maybe a few minor things that have been paid for five times over and it is back to the old days when the townspeople do all and still do but with less people to do it with, as they have moved out. Senator Brewer is in charge of the state taxes go to him, he can see who has nothing and who does receive something, it is time it is balanced and cut back.
