Massholes Seek Repeal of Income Tax

The New York Times has a story on a Massachusetts ballot initiative to entirely repeal the state's income tax (all 5.3% of it -- a flat tax). Massachusetts ranks 23rd among the 50 states in its "combined local and state tax burden".

Across the pond, Bush Poodle (that is, Britain's leading war criminal, the former PM Tony Blair) proposed drastic reductions in British taxes a few years ago. Voters overwhelmingly rejected the ideas and scoffed at the blunderhead Blair. The British, unlike many Americans, understood that taxes actually serve a purpose. It would be a laugh to see Massholes pass this and then see them scream bloody murder when their pet services are cut.

Thirty years of neo-con Republicans and Democratic Leadership Council Democrats have left us with a citizenry that seem genuinely to believe that "less government is better government" is invariably true.
