What is the difference in what Cobb Commissioner Tim Lee raising Property Tax and the proposed raising of Taxes by Obama?

ANSWER: NO DIFFERENCE

Raising taxes on jobless and financially strained property owners at this time is UNACCEPTABLE.

The property tax is already high and owners are upside down in their mortgages, and Cobb County is seeking yet another tax hike?

I'm sure there are other areas that can be CUT within the County to suffice for this proposed increase.

I oppose this Tax hike, as MANY other Cobb County Residents.
The County cuts Public Services before cutting back on Public Employees. Maybe this is where the County should begin and can save/find revenue to maintain Services for the general public.

There is a difference... the Cobb county commissioner is raising taxes on everyone that has property... the president is proposing to end the tax breaks the wealthy get. Please think for yourselves.
I oppose the tax hike on cobb residents.
