"YES WE CAN ! (RAISE YOUR TAXES)

"Yes we can!" (raise your taxes). Fresh off celebrating his birthday yesterday; Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick can celebrate today August 1st as the first day of the new state sales tax increase as the state tax rises from a previous five percent to the now 6.25% level with a new tax now on all liquor products on top of the current excise taxes already assessed on liquor.

In this booming economy (not) it only makes sense to raise taxes to stimulate the private sector (not) to have employers expand their businesses and hire more people. I'm sure that the Massachusetts store owners in towns near the New Hampshire border are jumping for joy and singing high praise and gratitude for this new tax rate as they are all going to be swamped with new business and will have to hire so many more people just to ring the cash register. This new tax is "Change you can believe in!" "Yes we can" pay more now for everything we buy. Since some people attribute a higher price to mean usually a better quality product; then that must mean the Massachusetts Budweiser beer is far superior to New Hampshire Budweiser beer even though there is a Budweiser brewery in New Hampshire and no Budweiser brewery in Massachusetts. The reason I guess for a higher Budweiser beer price in Massachusetts than in New Hampshire must be because with Budweiser's "beechwood aged" process these cans of "Bud" are slightly older and must taste slightly better in Massachusetts as it takes time to truck the beer from New Hampshire to Massachusetts.

If this new tax is the type of "change" that the people of Massachusetts voted for then I say "Keep the change" and "Change is all we will have left".

"Yes we can!" have change in our government. Maybe a good place to start would be in a change in leadership in the governor's office and the state legislature. Then again, " We get the government we deserve", maybe Massachusetts is trying to regain its former title of "Taxachusetts" and was concerned that some other states were trying to get the better of us as they had higher taxes in some areas than Massachusetts.

We the people of Massachusetts will not stand by and let other states have a higher tax rate than us. We will fight to have the highest tax rates possible. We will NEVER surrender our right to have the highest taxes and only vote for political candidates who promise to waste money and raise our taxes.

Are you with me? YES! Do you support higher taxes? YES!! Can we raise the taxes even higher?

"YES WE CAN! YES WE CAN!!, YES WE CAN!!! "
TAXES ARE COOL!, IF YOU DON'T LIKE TAXES YOU MUST BE A FOOL!!

"LONG LIVE TAXACHUSETTS!!!" YEA,YEA, YIPPEEEEEEEE!!!!!
