No Income Tax — in Massachusetts?!

The good citizens of Massachusetts are making a serious push to abolish the state’s income tax. Naturally, those who live on the public dole are screaming that civilization as we know it will come crashing down.

I grew up in Texas, which does not have an income tax. When I moved to Kansas, one of the painful adjustments I had to make was getting used to paying two income taxes instead of one. I still hate it.

There is a refreshing irony in seeing this modern tax revolt unfold in the same state that started it all 234 years ago.
