The national media weighs in on Question 1

If you’re still undecided about Question 1, the elite of the media elite could help you out. Both The New York Times  and The Wall Street Journal editorial boards have weighed in, with predictable advice, on the ballot measure that would abolish the state income tax.

The Times urged caution last week, even though the editorial admitted that Question 1 has a perverse allure for Massachusetts voters who want to signal their dissatisfaction with state government. Earlier on, the WSJ invoked the Redcoats to make its anti-tax case.
