I know it’s a slow news weekend with people paying more attention to the grill and fireworks, but what gives? Your blog entitled “Your Taxes at Work” [http://wbztv.com/kel…] is really short on substance and does not provide a balanced picture of how a 4.2% spending increase does not in fact provide the level of services that citizens of the Commonwealth want. We want to stop the erosion of public education and our infrastructure that is in decay. We want to see improved economic opportunity which is the basis of Senate President Murray’s – Baystate Competiveness Fund, which you freely dissed as her “pet project”.
Good for her! Build the economy Terry, I’m with you. Meanwhile hundreds of thousands of working residents in the Commonwealth have good affordable insurance for the first time through the Connector. If we wanted the abyss (“Whoops, sorry taxpayers, no tax cuts for you!”) that comes with tax cuts we would have voted for Healey.
Comparing the Bush surge with the Commonwealth’s budget? Yikes.
