Every tax is a pay cut. Every tax cut is a pay raise.

does with your money
|General Fund Per Capita Costs|
This year, starting July 1, 2002, we will spend $160,000,000
thru the General Fund alone (we'll ignore the Enterprise fund
for the moment).
Based on 48 work weeks in a year, 5 days a week, 37.5 hours/week or a 1800 hour year. The town government spends $88,888 per hour, $1,481 per minute or $24.69 per second. Time is valuable. If you sense that you are not getting much for your $24.69 per second, you're probably right.
Your per capita expense for the town government ($2,381) already far exceeds the per capita Massachussetts state income tax ($1,552).
To add insult to injury, we are told we have a revenue problem. We really have an expenditure problem in Framingham.
