During 1988, the famous presidential election when G.H.W. Bush team coined the phrase "Taxachusetts",

I have news for you, I lived in Massachusetts at that time, and had lived there for quite a while (born there, don't cha know).
"Taxachusetts" was coined long before that election. We had be using it for at least 10 years at that point.

I even still remember when Dukakis was running for President, I took a trip to NJ with a friend. While there, we were talking with some folks and one of them said, "Oh, you're from Massachusetts. You must be hoping Dukakis wins."
I replied, "Are you nuts?? I've got him for a governor, I sure as he77 don't want him for a President."
