Republicans want to act like Robin Hood in reverse

I see Republican Gov. Mike Pence is willing to allow some county tax rates to double, in order to allow for the elimination of the business personal property tax.

If this isn't a perfect example of the GOP's long-embraced, trickle-down economics - then what is? Reverse Robin Hood. Take from the less fortunate to help the rich. Then they claim to want to reduce taxes.

When will more of you realize who the GOP serves?

The only taxes they wish to reduce are those which help the ones that need it the least. Total hypocrisy — unless you listen to Fox News, of course.
