- Our families and our communities need investments in the services, schools, and infrastructure that make Massachusetts a great place to live and work.
- We must ensure we have sufficient revenue to make the necessary investments and our current revenue is not sufficient. Significant new revenue must be raised if we are to grow and prosper as a Commonwealth.
- Our tax system should be stable over time and simple to administer and understand and fair in that the luckiest and most successful pay their fair share
- New revenue raised should come primarily from the highest earners and that working families should be shielded from additional burden.
