Boston Herald Endorses YES on 3

“The predictions of doom and disaster are well underway…predicting the end of civilization as we know it…Count us in the Yes on Question 3 camp…The state spends too much!…enough already!…Taxpayers and voters are just fed up with lawmakers who listen more to special interests, more to public employee unions, more to advocates than to those paying the bills.”

“Count us in the Yes on Question 3 camp,” writes the Boston Herald.

On October 7th, the second largest circulation Newspaper in Massachusetts came out in favor of our Ballot Question 3 to roll back the sales tax from 6.25% to 3%.

Here are key excerpts from their Editorial Endorsement:

“A Ballot proposition is known by the enemies it makes – and lining up against the tax rollback are all the usual suspects: the Massachusetts Teachers Unions, the National Education Association, and government employee unions. And the Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation – which has rarely met a tax hike it didn’t like.”

“The state spends too much!

“What with unemployment high and underemployment even higher, and people cutting back on things they buy, well, the state has just not been able to take as much out of taxpayers’ pockets as its wants. So the Legislature upped the rate.

“Well, enough already!

“That’s the misson of Question 3. Taxpayers and voters are just fed up with lawmakers who listen more to special interests, more to government employee unions, more to advocates than to those paying the bills.

“Sometimes voters have to shout to be heard. This is one of those times.”
