Lincoln Chafee Promises that the General Assembly Will Pass His Tax Increase. Another Potential State Representative Disagrees.

Carroll Andrew Morse

Responding via the comments section of Anchor Rising, Don Botts, candidate for the Rhode Island House of Representatives in District 16 (Cranston) responds to independent Gubernatorial candidate Lincoln Chafee's plan to expand the RI sales tax, and Mr. Chafee's belief that the General Assembly will "go along" with that expansion, by saying...

If I am elected on Tuesday, I would not support Lincoln Chafee's plan to raise taxes.

Here we go-this addled baby chick blinking in the sun just KNOWS that the GA will bow their heads in deference to one of their "betters".What a complete dolt he is.

"That's the governor's leadership. They're going to go along."

Okay, so stipulating that for a moment, why not suggest some things for the G.A. to "go along" with that are GOOD for the state as a whole: the creation of a better business climate, for example, or the passage of relief from costly mandates for cities and towns?

There is no way in hell that I would support Chafee's tax increase.
