Yeah, we really should follow the lead of Massachusetts which pays its reps among the highest salaries in the country while raising taxes, raising tolls, and watching the state decline... NH beats MA in just about any measurement you can and part of that is that we have a representative government that the citizens don't have to bribe (check Senator Diane Wilkerson of MA; recently arrested for taking bribes...).

The GregW's of the world should move back to Taxachusetts and leave us NH'ers alone...
