Democrats who want to get elected lie about taxes. Bill Clinton promised a middle class tax cut. He lied and actually raised income taxes on the middle class. Deval Patrick promised property tax relief. He lied and actually gave us massive cuts in local aid. Barack Obama promised us a middle class tax cut as well. I won’t hold my breath.

Greater Boston Central Labor Council
The Massachusetts AFL-CIO
Teamsters Local 127
IBEW Local 103
The United Steel Workers Local 5696
Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainman

The Mass. Turnpike Authority’s annual ratio of operating and maintenance costs to revenues run more than double the average public toll road owner’s, and triple those of private-sector vendors…
Organizations like this make me want to start an organization called “Women for Reproductive Rights” and use it only to fight against abortion. Of course, I won’t do that because I’m not a lying fraud.
