Good to see Madam Chairwoman coming out swinging on Day One!
Massachusetts Republican Party Chair Jennifer Nassour made the
following statement today in response to Governor Patrick’s proposed
budget cuts and increased taxes:
MassGOP Chair Jennifer Nassour said, “Governor Patrick ran on the platform of reform, but instead he’s giving
Massachusetts families tax increases that will strangle the economy and
budget cuts that will hurt families. With unemployment nearly 7 percent
and 17,000 people laid off last month, the absolute last thing we need
is to increase taxes.
“Governor Patrick has done nothing to change the culture of corruption
and greed in a government dominated by his political party. To balance
the state budget, we need the Democrats to swallow some tough medicine
like pension reform and lowering health care costs for local
governments. Until that happens, families will continue to suffer under
the Patrick Administration,” concluded Nassour.
