Poll and Open Thread: What Tax Would They Raise Next?

(Would ya look at that.  Here’s a new tax the Governor Proposed.  A mileage Tax to be instituted by 2014.  But he said he’s not proposed any new taxes.

Should Charlie Baker become Governor, he will still have heavy Democratic majorities on Beacon Hill.  It is reasonable to wonder how much of of his tax cutting agenda he can pass.  Perhaps the greatest tool he has is the veto, and the threat of a veto.

If Deval Patrick wins re-election, THEY WILL RAISE YOUR TAXES AGAIN.  It is a certainty.  They aren’t even denying it.  Together they can!  Together they already did.  The only question remaining is:  “Which taxes will they raise?”

Miles Tax:  Deval Patrick has already propose it.  He wants to put RFID tracking chips in our inspection stickers to track our miles driven and tax us.  Of course, this is just the tip of the iceberg for what they would actually be used for.

Gas Tax:  Deval Patrick has already proposed it.  23.5 cents per gallon.  What a great way to stick it to working people.  A regressive tax piled on those already struggling to stay afloat.

Personal Income Tax:  They’ve already denied us our scheduled rollback they we voted for and passed.  His close ally Jamie Eldrige has already proposed raised it to 6.3%.  Can the progressive income tax be far behind?

Corporate Income Tax:  Democrats always have this one on the table.

Sales Tax:  They’ve already done it, they can do it again.  Keep pushing those jobs into New Hampshire.

Alcohol Tax  They’ve already done it, they can do it again.  Double taxation is fun for the whole family.  BTW:  has anyone else seen the studies showing drinkers live longer than non-drinkers?  http://www.time.com/time/healt…

Tobacco Tax: They’ve already done it, they can do it again.  They will do it again.  In fact, I dare anyone hear to make an argument that Democrats won’t raise this one.  Please.  Make the argument.  I could use the laugh.

Local Option Taxes: Cut local aid and pass the buck…. AGAIN…

Tolls:  It’s only temporary.  Just until they finish building the Pike.

Sugar:  He’s already proposed it.  The big government nanny state wants to tax your food.

Deposit:  10 cents per can?  Why not.  They like it in Detroit.

Fees:  Especially on guns.  Deval tried this one and the legislature respectfully told him to shove it.  There are many others.  Ways to stick it to small businesses, productive people, and other job creators that are not noticed by the masses.

Other:  This list is just off the top of my head.  I’m sure I’m missing many more.  What have I left out?
