No country or empire has ever taxed their way out of a recession in written history. Lower taxes = more jobs and better pay. Higher taxes = moving trucks going to states with lower taxes. Texas has the best economy in the US and has no income tax and lower property taxes than most states, including MAPatrick sounds so reasonable and asks for our understanding, as our state is being wrecked by the corporations he came from. His Democratic challenger Grace Ross has a plan, which includes rolling back the sales tax increase, halting the giveaway of tax dollars to corporations which then ship our jobs out of state anyway, and rescinding all the tax cuts on the corporations and the wealthy from the past two decades.
Fifteen years ago the corporations paid 20% of Massachusetts taxes, today they pay 4%. That would pay for a lot of library staff hours!

Which then voids the whole sheet.
