Pay More to Live Here!

The rumors are flying:

1) Because there's no automatic gas-tax increase, your Republican legislators decided to increase your license-plate renewal fees.

That's to show you who's really in charge (hint: they're called RoadBuilders.)

2) The smokers and the MD's have been tossed under the bus. $1.00/pack increase in cig taxes, a $200 million raid on a 'segregated' fund coming from MD's pockets (or your health-cost.)

Which means that the MDs will be moving out of State, and the smokers will be using on-line purchases (or more exotic devices) to purchase cigarettes off-the-books.

3) Apparently the K-R-M train will cost another tax increase of some sort...yet TBA.

4) DarthDoyle's "magic College" deal is in--so those taxpayers who remain in the State 4 years or longer from now will have to pay a LOT more in taxes.

Summed up: about $700 million in new taxes over 2 years, plus the downtrack "college" liability.

The Southeastern part of the USA looks more and more attractive every week.

Mike Huebsch caved like a house of cards. Typical glass jaw. Tired of all the pounding from the special interest groups.

The GutlessOP deserves to lose control of the Assembly as well if this passes.
