Granite Grok has been writing about how the newly Democrat NH Legislature has been pushing the Tax envelope:
The Concord Monitor is reporting on a plan by New Hampshire Democrat David Campbell (D- Nashua), that would eventually extract $115,000,000.00 million more dollars per year out of the pockets of struggling New Hampshire families. He’d like to raise the gas tax and the increase the cost to register your vehicles every year.
His ‘plan’ would raise the price you pay for gas five cents a year for three years. At the same time the cost of your vehicle registration would also increase five dollars a year for three years. So you’d’ see two separate tax increases every year for three years; is that two new taxes of six?
The question is why do Maggie Hassan and the Democrats think they can get away with this in New Hampshire? The answer the stuff being proposed in Massachusetts is EVEN WORSE:

Here is the direct link to the bill:
Bill H.3142 188th (Current)
An Act relative to the establishment of a vehicle mileage user fee pilot program by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation
By Mr. Sciortino of Medford, a petition (accompanied by bill, House, No. 3142) of Carl M. Sciortino, Jr. and others relative to the establishment of a vehicle mileage user fee pilot program by the Department of Transportation. Transportation.
The full text of the bill is at the link. No wonder Maggie & Co feel safe in NH, after even two years of Democrat power it will take an awful lot of crazy to catch up with the Bay State.
Why would anyone stay here?
