Romney looking to gut Prop. 2 1/2?
Romney's A&F stooge, Eric Kriss said that local aid cuts are small potatoes, because 'cities and towns are benefiting from steady growth in property tax revenue that should allow them to weather the fiscal storm.' (source: Boston Globe, 4/24/03).
Nicely put, Mr. Stooge. Except that your boss, the Fraud Governor, has repeatedly said that one of his chief goals as governor will be to reduce the cost of housing in Massachusetts. Hmmm, lower housing prices would lead to lower property tax receipts. Unless, of course, you increase the levy percentage.
Last year the Fraud Candidate proposed amending Prop. 2 1/2 by changing the excise tax rate. Perhaps the Fraud Governor is now looking to do away with the whole thing?
