Massachusetts is different, right? Here politicians work together with a spirit of collaboration to accomplish positive outcomes for their constituents, right? The Bay State can’t be compared to the polarized swampland of D.C. right? Jon Keller isn’t buying it, and in his last column for MASSterList he explains why.
In this week’s column, Jon Keller questions why after nearly five months since Gov. Charlie Baker proposed to spend some of the state’s revenue surfeit on tax cuts the Democrats at the State House are still hemming and hawing over how to provide relief. Who cares if the suspending the gas tax won’t produce exactly the relief at the pump everyone might hope? At least they could say they tried, Keller argues.
