Voting To Eliminate Income Taxes
If they can keep it from being kicked off the ballot, as always happens here in Arkansas, voters in Massachusetts will have the unique opportunity to vote to repeal their state income tax. Predictably, the doom & gloomers are out in full force forecasting the end of the world if the initiative actually passes. According to this piece from Fox News, the pro-tax forces are ahead in the polls, with 49% of people favoring keeping the tax and only 39% supporting its repeal. With over two months until the election, anything is possible. As always, I am rooting for the elimination of a tax and hoping that the Mass. voters will show people in other states that such a positive change is in fact possible.
