Wow...that's a new idea...lower revenue = less spending! I wonder who came up with that.

Well isn't it just about time that we really get serious about saving the tax payer. Just in case no one has noticed he is in serious trouble finacially. Even those folks who didn't amass credit card debt, who didn't buy a TV with a screen as big as all outdoors and who has dillently tried to save some for retirement, these also are in finacial trouble. So instead of local governmental officials talking about rising taxes maybe they should talk about cutting spending. We can start with a 20% salary cut to every county official making over $100,000,a 15% for those making over $90,000, a 10% wage cut for those over $80,000, and 5% to those over $70,000. Then we should discuss salary and benefit caps. If Locals would set a good example perhaps congress would see the light. It's time for the liberal hand outs to stop, for the illegals to go home, and for the tax payer to once again be in charge.

I think the time has come to stop using tax increases to fix all the fiscal problems. I've been unemployed for over a year now and my savings are being consumed just to stay afloat. There needs to be more fiscal responsiblity shown by our so called leaders...not a mindless increase in taxes everytime they need to solve money problems. There is only so much to go around and the 10% of us that are unemployed, there isn't anything left. I agree with County Wisdom. Let's get creative, guys. Not drive those of us already struggling into the ground. A pay cut is still better than unemployment compensation.

How does it feel to be without, mr "teabagger," and leeching off of the government? The shoes are now in your house.
