Hey, I'm Romney's biggest donor here! Maybe I should get together with the other 7 for dinner some time. It will be nice if Romney gets elected. An economic recovery will allow local and state tax revenues to recover. If we get a Republican governor to spend it responsibly, things could get much better in Massachusetts!
