Like many in Massachusetts, the leadership, staff, donors and supporters of Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance are concerned about the direction of our state. We call Massachusetts home and want to see our state improve, become more competitive, transparent and head in the right direction.
Unemployment and underemployed in some areas of the state are at unacceptable levels. Our state spending, cost of living and doing business, debt per capita and burdensome tax levels are out of control, fueled by out of touch leaders on Beacon Hill.
Politicians in state government place new and higher restrictions on innovation and the industries that produce job growth. The leadership of Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance launched a first of its kind, Beta version, online and real time legislative scorecard, which you may view by clicking the tab labeled "Scorecard" above or by visiting www.MassFiscalScorecard.org.
Instead of confronting the hard fiscal challenges ahead of us, many of our leaders refuse to offer sustainable solutions. Small businesses and entrepreneurs are suffering, unemployment and underemployment are rising and state spending is unsustainable.
Healthy debates on fiscal issues seldom occur. Beacon Hill special interests have monopoly control of the legislative process. We are on the brink of leaving the next generation of Massachusetts residents far less competitive.
Now is the time to get involved and demand fiscal responsibility from our leaders. It’s time we had leaders that are 100% dedicated to solving the fiscal issues affecting our state.
Massachusetts is always better off when its citizens, small business owners and entrepreneurs get involved and take control of our state’s future. Our scorecard is a step in that direction.
We hope to give Massachusetts residents the tools they need to make the best decisions. As residents of Massachusetts, we are concerned for our Fiscal future. Its time commonsense for the Commonwealth replaced stale and old ideas that don't work. Please join us, an Alliance of concerned fiscally responsible individuals to put our state government back on track.
