Hill Bully

Poor Brad Hill (R-Ipswich). The Republican Representative just can't catch a break.

Just one month after Willard Mitt said "it's time to carry out the will of the voters by lowering our tax rate to 5 percent" (source: Boston Globe, 5/4/2004) Hill said no because "we were told in budget discussions that Medicaid would increase by 7 percent in Fiscal Year 2005" which would make the tax cut too costly. (source: Lawrence Eagle Tribune, 6/20/2004) Then, just days later, Hill changed his mind and decided that he would support the cut because "the numbers grew only by 4 percent, which allows more money to be available."

Pssst. Rep. Hill. You forgot the golden rule: never write when you can speak, speak when you can nod, nod when you can wink, or trust Romney's numbers.

Because earlier this week, Willard Mitt's numbers changed.

The Fraud Governor's 'top economist' said that the Commonwealth will collect nearly a billion dollars less than it requires to maintain programs and services in 2006. (source: Boston Globe, 11/10/2004)

Oddly, when asked if the anticipated shortfall would impact Willard Mitt's sponsorship of the tax rollback the flack formerly known as the stout, Reese Witherspoon-wannabe dye-job aide to Romney’s loathsome $150,000-a-year spokesman huffed that "we are not prepared to discuss the fiscal year 2006 budget at this time." (source: Boston Globe, 11/10/2004)

Too bad she didn't clue in Rep. Hill.

Hill believed Team Reform when they said the Commonwealth could afford an income tax rollback and that after implementing said roll back, the Commonwealth would not need the lost revenue - in fiscal year 2006 or beyond. He believed them, and flipped his position to reflect Romney's stance.

Okay, Rep. Hill. You opposed the tax cut when you thought we couldn't afford it, then supported it when you thought we could afford it, but are being told that even your (fraud) Governor thinks we'll not have enough money to meet our needs.

What's your new position?

Howsabout "you're not prepared to discuss the Fraud Governor at this time."
