Romney budget criticism is self-defeating
An aide to Romney's loathsome $150,000 a year spokesman criticized the FY04 House Ways & Means budget. "We feel the Legislature went a bit too far with the fees and we would rather they look at the common-sense reforms the governor set forth in his budget." (source: Boston Globe, 4/24/03)
Sure - like the Fraud Governor's plan to extort $75 million dollars from casinos in other states as a condition that Massachusetts not legalize expanded gambling, despite the fact that those same casinos repeatedly said that they would make no such payments.
Now THAT'S common sense.
It's a bit like criticizing fee increases when most of the proposed increases were taken from your adminstration's own budget.
