The Boston Globe e reported yesterday on safety-net programs that were cut this year but could theoretically be restored as a result of the $500K in taxes Senator John Kerry has just paid on his new yacht.

I would point out these programs could also be restored if we were to repeal the Pacheco Law, reform our pension system, or allow municipalities to impose more reasonable health care plans on their employees. (In fact if we did all those things, we'd reap savings in the tens of millions!)
