For a start lets get rid of the seventy grand a year political patronage job of Mass Pike toll taker and then lets get rid of the cops drinking coffee at construction sites then we can move on to the welfare rats who breed to stay on the dole.Next lets work any nonviolent criminals at no pay whatsoever.
Maybe if ther overpaid cops get mad and start writeing tickets to all the traffic scofflaws who don't stop for red lights,school buses,people in cross walks and speeders then we could recoupe a lot of the lost money.

everything would get cut. EVERYTHING! that means road funds, so expect ice and snow on the roads each winter. School budgets so you can expect your real estate or rent to go up to support the schools. There will be a reduction in police, fire, ambulance etc etc etc. How about doing away with public libraries, home health for the ederly. meals on wheels.
I could go on and on.
Vote No to Q1!
