Even Democrats are unsure that raising the state income tax by one percentage point is the right way to raise funds for the governor’s education and highway plans. 

Following Governor Patrick’s State of the Commonwealth address last night, Senate President Therese Murray said state lawmakers may, quote, “meet him somewhere down the road, but we don’t know yet.”  House Speaker Robert DeLeo was even less supportive, saying lawmakers need to hear from business owners and constituents to see, quote, “what this means to them.”  Republican House Minority Leader Bradley Jones, Junior was extremely critical, saying the governor was going back on his reelection promise not to raise broad-based taxes.
