The liberals in Massachusetts were so apoplectic about a...gasp...cut in the state income tax some years back (less than half a percent) that they legislated to get a question on the state income tax form.

It allows any resident to opt to pay at a rate of 5.85% instead of 5.3%.

Something like 1/20 of one percent of all filers opt to pay at the higher rate...in a state that houses lots of lefties. I wonder if Matt Damon checked that box when he lived in Cambridge?

When John Kerry had the choice of paying a higher Tax rate on his MA State Tax Form, he chose the lower rate.

When John Kerry had the choice to pay MA Taxes on his Yacht, he chose not to.

When President Obama and Vice President Biden had the choice of paying additional Federal Income Taxes by taking the Standard Deduction rather than Itemizing, they chose itemizing.

And that 1/20th of 1% are the dumb-asses who accidentally check off the wrong box.
