On Saturday, The Capitol View laid the Massachusetts economy to rest, as a whopping 25% sales tax hike went into effect. And while we here in the Commonwealth mourned that loss, New Hampshire businesses and residents rejoiced as business boomed in the border communities.
According to an editorial in today’s Union Leader, “The Granite State cannot count on the stupidity of Massachusetts legislators forever.” Sounds harsh, but unfortunately it is true. We hope Massachusetts Democrats who voted in favor of the sales tax increase and Governor Patrick who signed the ridiculous bill into law, realize exactly what they’ve done. In one swift decision, the tax and spend Democrats have buried our economy while boosting another.
Once again, when you head to the voting booth in about 400 days, remember what the Union Leader said today, “The Granite State cannot count on the stupidity of Massachusetts legislators forever.”
