I heard on the news last night that MA will vote today to possibly repeal the state income tax. The news report went on to say that this issue has been voted on several times in MA, but they (the pollsters, I assume) predict it will pass this time.
My question is: If CA Prop 8 passes, is that the end of the issue forever and ever? Can it ever be brought back up for a vote, say in 20 years or so?
Also, I’ve heard from several of my “no on 8” friends that even if it does pass, there will be a some backlash.
Hopefully, it will not pass. This morning, while in line to vote, I overheard a lady talking to her friend about “protecting marriage” and she had the nerve to say that the purpose of marriage was to pro-create. I guess in her view, if you don’t plan on having children, then you shouldn’t get married.
I thought about posting this in GQ, but I don’t think there’s a definitive answer to my question. Mods, please move if not appropriate for this forum.
