MA Senator Richard Moore: Any extension of tax cuts should include the provisions of the “Main Street Fairness Act

Politico.com published a blog post today by Massachusetts State Senator Richard Moore which gave a ringing endorsement for the Main Street Fairness Act, and which advocates for including provisions of the Act in any extension of tax cuts (generally referring to the extension of the so-called Bush Tax Cuts).
The post closes with the following sobering assessment: The national recession is still threatening America at the state and local level. Without the benefits of H.R. 5660, states will be forced to lay off more teachers, public safety personnel and others in the next two or three years and reduce state and local purchases of private sector services. The resulting increase in unemployment and decrease in state and local government purchases of goods and service could harm the recovery and even lead to a “double-dip” recession.”
