A laugh & a joke. Douglas wanted to dump $40 million onto property taxes thereby raising taxes *for all*, esp hurting small business, working families w/children, middle class, working poor, recently unemployed & unemployed burdening the already overburdened & forcing small business to cut staff increasing unemployment.<quoted text>Join me: Every time taxes go up: Jobs leave or close down:Increased cost due to Goverment: Say I told you so: Every Person that has complained about high taxes I say what did you expect you voted for Democrats.
Also wanted to end income sensitivity, further overburdening the overburdened including the aforementioned w/exception of those who do not qualify.
Renters would simply have this cost passed on & charged by landlords to make up the loss.
Also wanted to cut approx the same in necessary services to the most vulnerable which would include those employed to provide those services.
And, give a tax cut to *the* most wealthy taxpayers, those making $350.000.00/year or more.
Dubie would have done the same.
Do not kid yourselves, any other tax cuts would have been small in comparison to the windfall bestowed upon their wealthy friends.
Unless you are in the aforementioned group you would not be very happy about this.
If you are, who cares.
