If the services that are going to be saved by these tax increases are really that critical to my life and well being, then I would like to help pay for them. I am not a fan of receiving handouts or of singling out a small segment of the population and making them pay for something that everyone is going to use. Unfortunately, the voting population in this state always wants something for nothing, and a fair tax increase of less than one percent across all tax payers would never pass.
When the economy gets better, the state will start more new programs that we don't really need. Then, when the economy gets bad again, they'll put schools and public safety back on the chopping block. Which group shall we single out then? The obese? Bike riders? Working parents? Non-working parents? People without children? People who's income is higher than $20? People who receive hourly wages as opposed to salary?
