A great little article from peachpundit.com (conservative site) about how the Georgia Republican led legislators intend to get around increasing taxes and violating their "no taxes ever pledge" and dirtbag Grover Norquist.

What a joke these Republicans are. I'll be glad when the day arrives their gone forever. Here's a few paragraphs for flavor:

Monday, the Georgia General Assembly convened for the first of its 40 days. It’s clear that budget issues will dominate the early part of this session, with uncertainty in Washington threatening to delay completion of the budget and threatening to extend the legislature well into the spring.

The Governor on Monday made a move to limit the amount of budget uncertainty, proposing to convert the responsibility of issuing the “hospital bed tax” to the Department of Community Health. This would, in concept, allow lawmakers to sidestep the pledge most Republicans have made to Americans for Tax Reform not to raise taxes. Instead, lawmakers would just be delegating their constitutional authority to unelected bureaucrats.

A major current revenue stream of roughly one half billion dollars to the state treasury would be protected, Republicans would get to honor their pledge, and hospitals would be subject to taxation by a board on which they have no representation.

This is no way to govern.

bla bla bla bla bla

If Republicans must find a way to placate Norquist, then slice a decimal place of the existing bed tax rate and demand it be called a tax cut. It’s equally senseless in the amount of gymnastics that politicians are willing to go through to avoid charges of increasing taxes, but Republicans may be able to sleep well at night if they renew the tax at 1.44% of hospital revenue instead of 1.45%.

At least then they could tell themselves they “cut” taxes. They wouldn’t have to tell themselves that they are too feckless and powerless to do what the people send them to Atlanta to do, and that they had to allow appointed bureaucrats to do it for them.

Rant at the wind much, Taxman?

The Grover Norquist pledge was with members of congress. Last time I checked that did not include the state of Georgia legislature.

Lastly, how do you feel about ole "Half and Half"
increasing the national debt buy 6+ trillion in less than 5 years?

You miss the point bubba. Thats not what the people want. What the people want is for the republican party to die a quick death and be replaced with a true fiscally conservative party. The Libertarian Party would be a good replacement. The republican party is controlled by RINO's and social conservative idiots. They are for unrestrained government spending like democrats and they want to control women's vaginas.

Get over it. Women can do with their vaginas as they please. You can't build a major political party on vagina control.

The damn House GOP is not the real conservatives they parade to me...many of the switched party a few years back because they knew they could not get elected as a democrat from their district.

We call them SWITCH-O-Crats.

Wrong. Again. Redneck.

State legislators, Georgia's too, have signed the damn thing. Too bad they did not pledge to do what's right for the state. You must be a non-reading, non-fact based Re-Teapublican since all this info was in the cited article. Go figure.

What a bunch of Republican clowns! Vote them all out! I can't believe the last part - or actually I can - where they'll renew the bed tax at 1.44% down from 1.45% and announce having passed a major tax cut! Sleaze balls. Vote Democratic! At least they look after people, not just fat cats.
