do not let this government bully you into thinking that cutting taxes is bad.....unbelievable that they do this...scare us into thinking that if we roll back the high taxes they put on us...we will suffer. It will be them who suffer because they will have less to spend recklessly. Do you think its fair that this government tax alcohol...they are taxing a tax? Beacon hill can spend 30 million dollars for vacant parking lots across the commonwealth? Another 3 million for a sound barrier wall along 128 that the only thing present is woods? No houses? So right there alone is 33 million of our dollars spent fooloishly. Why do we continue to allow this? Are we slowly becoming the idiots they think we are? Time to clean house and we are the only ones driving this bus....wake up voters...when are we going to say: ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

Even if it passes they will not lower it to 3%, at least not right away. It will probably go down to 5% at best if Ques.3 passes.
However, if it does not pass, like the referendum to lower/eliminate the state income tax in 2008,then that's a clear signal to the legislatures on Beacon Hill that we still didn't learn our lesson and that we're open to even more taxation. Don't let this happen, don't you be fooled again.
