letters | PATRICK’S TAX PROPOSALS

Graduated income tax wouldn’t fly with voters

In “More hikes in Patrick’s blueprint” (Page A1, Jan. 18), you cited Citizens for Limited Taxation’s reaction to Governor Patrick’s proposed income tax rate increase, and wrote that the group “said it is clear that Patrick is now trying to ‘tax the rich’ disproportionately.”

The reason we say this is that the governor’s budget director, Glen Shor, said, as you paraphrased, that “the goal is to push more tax burden onto higher-income earners and reduce it for those earning less.”
