  •  I understand.... (0+ / 0-)

    ....why some of the transportation might want to be funded by gasoline taxes.  But education?  If they don't use the income tax for that, they're running afoul of equal funding mandates.

    And why are they raising business taxes if they're worried about the business climate?  I'd go after the income tax.  You can't make it graduated in Mass (because of the state constitution) but you can try to make it at least somewhat progressive.

    They're afraid of the MSM calling them out on austerity.  So they're hiking taxes that they think nobody will notice.
