Comment I applaud Amazon (Score 1) 507

Screw spendthrift state governments. Instead of controlling state spending by paring down ridiculous state and local employee pensions, the first thing the MA state legislature and governor did was increase sales taxes by 25%. Not a very bright move in the middle of a recession when your state is right next door to sales-tax-free NH. No wonder that's where Amazon located their regional distribution center. A great case example of how high state taxes kill off jobs and commerce, sending them to lower tax states instead.
