Nassour: It's Reform, NOT Revenue

GOP Says Governor and Democrat Legislature have no plan for reform

Boston, MA - The Massachusetts Republican Party today issued the following statement in response to Governor Patrick's statements on the fiscal situation of Massachusetts.

MassGOP Chairman Jennifer Nassour said, "These spending cuts are tough medicine forced on the public by the failure of the Governor and the Legislature to lead on reform. Sadly, under the current Beacon Hill leadership, the only way we will see smaller, more efficient government is when the flow of tax dollars is reduced either through a tough economy or tax cuts. The Democrats and Governor Patrick don't understand the plight of Massachusetts families, because if they did, their slogan would be 'reform, not revenue.' Instead, we have a Legislature incapable of passing real reform, a Governor insistent on raising taxes, and leaders who have lost the public trust."
