The Next Taxachusetts Attack

With Gov. Maura Healey’s recent launch of television commercials, she wants us all to think that we are safe from tax increases and that she is working hard to make our state affordable.

Nothing could be further from the truth. We all know that she is only interested in making Massachusetts affordable for illegal aliens.

So, what is going to be the next tax attack? 

Despite the state enjoying billions in new revenue from sports betting and the so-called millionaires’ tax, revenues are plummeting as spending has drastically increased to house and give the illegals the unbelievably long list of benefits Howie catalogued in his column yesterday.

So how are Beacon Hill pols going to get blood from a stone now?

They are going to do a tax-burden shift, so you will be blaming local municipal officials instead of the State House crowd as we approach the November elections.

As the fiscal year progresses, it is getting harder and harder for Healey to find the savings to balance the budget which is required by law.

She has been doing her best to ignore that billions in unlimited, lavish welfare to illegal is crushing the budget’s bottom line. With time dwindling, her options are limited because the money has been spent.

Soon the administration’s only option will be cutting local aid that goes to the municipalities to fund schools and first responders, among other important things. 

Healey is most likely going to slash this aid, forcing municipalities to face the unpalatable alternative of either cutting services or raising their own local taxes.

That’s why Healey has filed legislation to allow communities to raise the local meals tax and double auto-excise taxes.

Can you hear her now?

“We understand how inflation has hurt everyone. We don’t want to add to people’s burden. That’s why we have given the communities the tools they need to get through these funding shortages.”

Even Speaker Ron Mariano has gotten into the act. He has suggested that there should be a local option housing transfer tax, as if buying and selling a home doesn’t already have enough expenses.

Or should he call it the exit tax as even more taxpayers flee the state?

One way or another, the day of reckoning is coming for the working classes of Massachusetts due to Healey’s squandering of billions of taxpayers’ dollars to pamper the illegals, as well as her climate-change hackerama.

Right now, it looks like local taxes are where we who work for a living are going to be feeling more pain.

Brace for impact.
