  • Tisei (R-Wakefield) 100%


  • Thank you to CLT (Citizens for Limited Taxation) for ALL the work you do.  Thank you today ..thank you tomorrow and THANK YOU especially on behalf of everyone who lives in a town/city in MA which has to keep the increase in taxation at or under 2.5% because of all your hard work over the years.  Barbara Anderson, Chip Faulkner and the rest of the team should be up for Massachusetts Sainthood!  

  • What are the roll call votes this is based on and how many were there?  It would seem that this would be a pretty easy year to get a 100% if the only grade they’re scoring is the sales tax increase and some budget amendments.

    What leadership!  Thanks CLT–that’s huge! (sarc)

    How about, oh I don’t know, recruiting and electing candidates at the local level?

  • Why do people call him a conservative Democrat?

    He was even endorsed by NARAL in a Democrat Primary.

    I know him. I like him. He is an awesome guy, very nice, funny, but he is a liberal.

    Below is what CLT’s 2 1/2 PAC did to help in the effort to elect a new Legislature in 2008. What have YOU done to help?

    I’ll graciously accept your apology on behalf of CLT, its members and supporters, as soon as you offer it. In the meantime, I suggest that you stop digging your hole deeper — that’s the first step in climbing out . . .

    Feel free to make a contribution yourself when you get around to it.

  • I have no idea why people are denigrating CLT here. They have been an effective and much needed voice for the taxpayers. Heck, they have been fighting and wining battles on behalf of taxpayers since before I was alive.

    If you want more votes on tax issues, ask your legislators or the GOP leadership why they didn’t call for more roll call votes. CLT cannot control that. All they can do is issue ratings based upon what happened in the legislature that year.

    Every homeowner in the state owes them a debt of gratitude for keeping their property taxes from getting completely out of control. They have ahead of the curve regarding sounding the alarm about public pensions in an effort to drum up public awareness and outrage. And, they have always been there to help activists fight overrides in their communities.

    I have sent in my, albeit modest, membership renewal, and I encourage everyone to contribute. They run a tight ship, and even a small contribution goes a long way.
