I’m on vacation this week. So I don’t expect to be blogging much. But you never know.
Here is what looks like a pretty run of the mill bullet list of Democrat talking points on taxes. This is the kind of stuff you find on the lefty candidates campaign sites, in emails from Democrat Mark Fernald month after month after month, or from the mouths of other lefties who run the Granite State Fair Tax Coalition.
