There’s a movement afoot in Massachusetts to repeal the state income tax. There’s even a good chance it will pass, saving each taxpayer an average of $3,700 per year – compare that to Obama’s stimulous plan of $1,000 (which, of course, won’t go to actual taxpayers – we’re too rich but instead to the “needy).
Could we get rid of the income tax here in Connecticut? We’ll never know, unless we change our constitution, because ballot inititives aren’t allowed. Nutmeg voters might support a repeal but it’s a cinch our legislators won’t because they’re the ones controlling all the money it sucks in. There’s a chance to amend our constitution on this November’s ballot and guess who opposes it? the teachers union. Quelle surprise.
