STOP AUTOMATIC TAX HIKES BALLOT CAMPAIGN

DEMOCRATS CONTINUE WAR ON DRIVERS
MA DEMOCRAT PARTY OPPOSES BALLOT QUESTION ON REPEALING AUTOMATIC GAS TAX HIKES
Boston, MA…Today Steve Aylward, a chief organizer for the ballot question to stop automatic gas tax hikes, criticized the Massachusetts Democrat Party for endorsing taxation without representation and automatic gas tax hikes.
“I’m not surprised they endorsed against our ballot initiative. Their leadership gave us the tech tax. Their leadership gave us the sales tax hike. Their leadership gave us double taxation on alcohol. And their leadership gave us close to $1 billion in mismanagement of our tax dollars. Why would we think that they would now care about drivers or taxpayers?” said Aylward. “The Democrat party is the party of special interest not the hard working taxpayers.”
On Tuesday night the Massachusetts Democrat party unanimously endorsed against the ballot initiative to stop automatic tax hikes which is not surprising since all but 3 Democrat House members voted for the linkage.
“The legislature barely meets 30 days per year in formal session. Why can’t they meet 31 days to vote as to whether or not to increase the gas tax? Our founding fathers are revolving over in their graves over this taxation without representation,” said Aylward. “We believe the taxpayers deserve better. The Democrat Party believes they are automatically entitled to more of our tax dollars. Who’s the friend of the working people now?? It’s certainly not the tax and mismanage Democrat party.”
