On December 6th MA voters overwhelmingly voted down a measure that would have phased out the state's income tax. Unsurprisingly, state officials and those fearing a loss of state revenue (i.e. contractors on the government dole) implemented a massive campaign, reportedly outspending advocates of the repeal of the income tax by a 10-to-1 margin, that centered on scare-tactics about the "devastating" effect it would have on government services.
Still, what the hell! Hopefully some of those rationale folks who voted for the repeal of the income tax vote with their feet and move to New Hampshire, an area that not only has no income tax but the lowest tax burden in the lower 48 states.
