Sometimes I hate being right. Last year, I warned that Brown’s second term would include a tax increase. The GOP candidates didn’t try to get him to pledge again on taxes. He said as much in a press conference. They should of pounded him over and over to at least get another pledge even as their victory was in doubt. This would have been a win for the taxpayers. Now it’s not happening
But why now? Why when Brown touts an improving economy? He’s a termed out politician and has to repay those that patiently waited through the first term. He has to pay those supporters back. So Brown is easing us into a tax increase. First by softly floating the idea. Soon we will see how bad it is.
