According to the Boston Globe the House has been discussing this behind Closed Doors. It is bad enough they want to screw us, but at least do it in the open, all state business should be done in the open.

Why is there no talk amongst Democrats in the Legislature of LOWERING the sales tax?
Why no recognition that there is a serious recession and businesses are hurting badly?
Why no serious attempts to cut state spending?
For example, why don't the state reps and senators provide an example by taking a pay cut of 50% for the duration of the recession?
It's not Republicans who are pushing for higher taxes.

It dose not matter if you want the tax or not. They will find another way to get their money. The real problem is to throw the bums out and cut down on all the spending! Taxxachusetts and more bureaucratic rules. It's a sick society - more rules - more laws- more spending -more taxes- It's called
"CHANGE" and you all voted for it!
