Do you see where Deval is heading to the West Coast to try to talk some poor benighted businesses to head for MA, now that he and the legislature have actual MA businesses on life support? I guess he thought if he searched far enough away, no one there would know about MA's "business climate."
And have you heard the ads on radio about how great MA is for business? I couldn't believe any actual business would take part in them, so I started to listen more closely: Not one of them mentions any real, specific actual benefit conferred by MA on their businesses. No, what they talk about is what their business does, what services/products they offer and what they do for their customers. Then they add, out of nowhere, the "little white lie" (or The Big Lie, if you prefer) that MA is vaguely, in some unspecified way, good for business.
So they get a "free" radio spot (what do they go for nowadays?) in exchange for throwing a little incense before Caesar. Cheap at the price, I guess . . .
yeah, so much for “another Massachusetts business success
story”, Governor! (or as the most recent Dem guv put it,
“The Massachusetts Miracle—GOOD jobs, and GOOD wages!”
Ah yes,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,TAXachusetts, it’s all here......
