Graduated Pain

Even in the middle of a communal scream, begging for relief, the socialists plot to raise taxes. Governor Patrick refuses to rule out new taxes if he's reelection, and listen to State Senator Jamie Eldridge discuss the need for higher taxes.

Eldridge is an advocate for a progressive income tax that would reduce payments for the middle class and increase taxes for the wealthy, possibly earners of at least $500,000 per year.

Voters have five times rejected a graduated income tax, and have been waiting ten years for voters to honor a referendum requiring that the "temporary" tax hike be ended, returning the flat income tax to 5%, where it belongs. So much compassion from the leftists - for everyone but the working man who pays the bills.
