I find it amazing how the lib left get on these sites and bully the opposition,. Over the past 5 yrs everything has increased for the working class except their wages. AS far as the unions? They have hurt the working class with their "loyalty" to one party. Pence has created jobs and brought more prosperity to Indiana than most states. If you think the dems do better? Then look at the states run by dem. Michigan, NY, California, Illinois, all broke.(Ill, wants to double property taxes) Problem is their socialist agenda runs out of everyone elses money. The dems took over in 2006. That's when all this skyrocketing began with fuel, groceries, taxes. Get the facts. Stop listening to the media.

I don't see anything here about the fact that St. Joseph County has the SECOND highest property taxes in the entire state of Indiana. I don't see ANYONE asking here WHY out of 92 counties in the state of Indiana.....OUR county has the second highest property tax rate in the state. Are we the second most wealthy county? Can some one talk to me about this?

If you have a lot of welfare and crime in you're county somebody has to pay for it, So they raise taxes. You can live in a wealthy county but still have a lot of welfare and crime.

The true reason is we don't have enough business, nor industry's to pick up the slack. The large county's do have the industry to offset the taxs. The next issue is we small town folks like to have all the services that the big city folks have, yet until we get some big businesses to come to our county, we will have to pay higher taxs or live with less.

To keep your county and city safe and clean is a good trade off for all that big city crap and well worth it. I wouldn't trade small town life for big city chaos, Gangs and crime for anything.

Clean & safe? I take it you don't go out much after 11pm. From about 11pm to 4am the drug creatures rule this town.

How dare you insult the catholics and St. Josephs Parish. We are superior to people like you in every conceivable way. Go look up what our Holy Father the Pope said about governments and helping the poor. Maybe if you had even half a brain you'd be happier. Bob Stratton, Jasper Indiana
Maybe you should consult the Pope about your judgmental demeanor. I believe he promotes humility and kindness. He would probably forgive you and tell you to "go and sin no more."

Bob protests too much. He feels guilt for being molested by his Priest? I think so. I think the Catholics that act like he does will burn. The rest of us will be fine.

No great achievements have been made by either party. Now how much more money is required for all those free benefits for Democrat's illegal aliens and Obama's' wanted diseased "unaccompanied foreign children" the news reports? Democrat's choice for president has spent more, played more golf, taken more vacations, intentionally destroyed this country far more than the "teaparty" has.

HEALTHCARE FOR THE PREVIOUSLY UNINSURED....Don't Forget......Plus, President Obama deported more illegals in his first 3 years, than Bush did in 8 years......You should know that, or at least act like you do.....
