I think the sales tax increase is wrong where do we go from this point our realestate taxes are moving seniors right out of their homes this is sickening I don't see any famous politicians taking decreases in their paychecks. Seniors are almost going to go hungry because noone cares especially the town of East Longmeadow Ma the taxes here are out of sight

The Town of East Longmeadow should be investigated they are the town who collects the most in taxes and don't care if seniors are having difficulty surviving try to apply for the over 70 refund for the realestate taxes and you get no response go to the assesors office and ask a question about the over 70 refund on your state taxes and hear the answer you get well the town pays police school taxes trash pickup firemen and other now do you think we don't know that they take nothing into consideration the way people have lost their retirements in the stockmarket divorced elderly thru no fault of their own that they are in that situation at no fault of their own and take a look at one employee in the assesors office who is so mean and fresh and looks down on people she sits at her desk in her little private office and acts like she is owed the job

Deval Patrick is what I now refer to as an L.S.D.(Liberal Socialist Democrat). When he was a small child and the teacher asked him how he would solve the problem 2+2=, without hesitation he responded "Raise Taxes. That's how you solve every problem !"
Now we know why he has us pay for him to have a bodyguard with when he is unrecognizable on a beach in a foreign country. He , like his tag team partner B.Hussein Obama both are smart enough to know not to spend too much time outside with the little people.
This idiot is going to be a one term wonder. Christy Mihos will be our next Governor.
