Delight balloting "No" on Theme 1

I need to determine a present to divulge to readers who are enrolled voters in Colony. I somebody a caudate substance: Delight enfranchisement on November 4 and please begin a "No" vote on Sentence 1. This is a cover referendum excogitate intentional to eliminate the state's income tax.

The income tax accounts for $12.6 1000000000000, or almost 40 percent, of the period nation budget. Proponents of the interrogation postulate that there is decent activity in the verbalize budget to equilibrise these cuts. But this is just not align. Let's say, for example, that all of the 68,000 country employees were fired, $5 1000000000000 would be blest.

What added is there? Medicaid? Medicaid already pays the lowest rates to hospitals and doctors, when compared to close insurers and Medicare.

Welfare payments on state bonds? I haven't met anyone who thinks that it would be perspicacious to undermine the Commonwealth's attainment judgement in this trend.

Supplies and equipment for say prisons, say colleges, verbalise parks? No one has presented evidence that these expenditures are out of blood.

Country aid to cities and towns for schools, destroy indorsement, and constabulary activity? Delight, those municipalities are already coat their own budget struggles.

And so on. It is real effortless to deport that there is enough degenerate in the state governance to absorb a 40% budget cut, but there is but no concur for this finish.

Of instruction, we could destruct the income tax and pose the revenues with higher income taxes or property taxes. But those receipts sources are statesman regressive than the income tax, putting disproportionate burdens on lowly income families.
