Romney Makes Bay State Number One!

The non-partisan National Conference of State Legislatures has found that while thirty states raised fees this year, Massachusetts' $501.5 million in fee hikes was more than any other state in the nation. New York, which has a far larger budget, was second, having enacted $367 million in increased fees. (source: Boston Globe, 7/24/2003)

Now, we recall that not to long ago, the Fraud Candidate claimed he would be the good governor when it came to wallet whacking. "Everybody knows that if you are elected, we're going to have another massive tax increase. Your position on taxes is so screaming loud that I can't even hear your voice," Romney yapped at an opponent during one debate. (source: Boston Globe, 10/30/2002)

Typical Romney mis-direction - complain about taxes, then feast on fees.

Romney's loathsome $150,000-a-year spokesman tried to gloss over the bad news by sneering, "fees did go up, but taxes did not." However, Michael Widmer, of the conservative Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation, disagreed, saying "It's disingenuous to say there's no new taxes, in the sense that there's very little connection to the fee increases and the cost of services that the fees are supposed to represent." (source: Boston Globe, 7/24/2003)

Please note Widmer had the decency to not mention the 2 1/2 cent gas tax that the Fraud Governor imposed on the good people of Massachusetts to fill up the underground storage tank cleanup fund. (source: Boston Herald, 6/28/2003)

Pop quiz: who said the following, and to whom were they seemingly referring? "There are some people who would get the bus going back to Taxachusetts." (source: Worcester T&G, 10/5/2002)

Pop answer: Willard Mitt Romney, and Willard Mitt Romney.
