Somehow, I Don’t Think That’s What Grover Had in Mind
by

Here in Massachusetts, I keep seeing these television commercials saying that Republican gubernatorial candidate Charlie Baker plans to outsource jobs. In fact, he has even signed a pledge to support tax breaks for outsourcing jobs. When I squint and look down at the fine print, they name a source for this claim: Americans for Tax Reform.

This is an awfully misleading representation of the Taxpayer Protection Pledge. Those who take the pledge promise to oppose the elimination of any tax breaks unless they are compensated for by offsetting reductions in marginal tax rates. In other words, Baker is pledging not to raise taxes rather than pledging to ship your job to India.
