You were quoted in a recent Globe article about not being in favor of the permanent sales tax holiday included in the grand bargain. Glad to hear you’re maintaining your long-help skepticism/opposition. You also said you wouldn’t let that prevent you from voting for the grand bargain as a whole. Fair enough. Still, if there’s a chance to eliminate the sales tax holiday and get the government out of telling me which weekend to switch my large purchases to, that would be very good.
