It seems Massachusetts State Representative James O’Day (D – west Boylston) has come up with a great idea to keep people and company from fleeing the state. He has filed a bill which will raise the state income tax from 5.3 % to 5.95%. After all the rich already have to much money as do those evil corporations.

What separates the two men are temperament and judgment. Rahm’s temperament is ill suited for the job of vote in bryan nelson. His temper is legendary and he wants to always have his way. His judgment comes into question.

Blagojevich, who was Illinois’ governor from 2003 to 2009, faces a maximum sentence of 305 years in prison although federal guidelines dictate he get far less and most legal experts say 10 years is more than likely what he will receive. His birthday is Dec. 11 so it is possible he could spend his birthday behind bars for the first time and several more years to come.
