This is a response to Susan Zivich, of Munster, about the county income tax. Jim Brown is absolutely right about it being Republicans' fault. It was due to the 1 percent cap on real estate taxes that Daniels and Republican legislators put into the state Constitution.
The Democrats cut the cost of running the county by millions until they couldn't cut any more. This is what the Republicans wanted so they could look good by people like you that don't understand politics.
Instead of bad-mouthing the Democrats, you should thank them for the decades they fought to keep this tax from happening and the thousand of dollars you didn't have to pay.
Zivich didn't say anything about Munster being run by Republicans who built a multi-million dollar aquatic center and then have a referendum passed to bring in more taxes for the school so the school could keep running.
