I would like to know why our government's first answer is to always raise taxes.
We have no money, they say, but can find plenty when they get raises. Shall we talk about all the perks they get too? Wish I could get raises like they do.
Lake County wants to do a income tax that also unfreezes our property tax cap, and they also might raise taxes for our vehicles.
How are people to survive? Sure not going to get a huge raise to cover all this.
Obamacare is coming at us, too, to raise taxes for people who have insurance. Are the people supposed to sign their checks over to the government and still owe?
How are people supposed to live? Is the County Council going to convince my bosses to give me a raise to cover all this?
What is this going to mean? More foreclosures, more unemployment, more people on the street and more people on aid.
Sincerely looking for tea and a harbor.
