They refuse to raise taxes for once? But they are willing to cut funding to school and fire a bunch of people? They are so honorable in protecting taxpayers in this economic time.

no one asked me - i say no tax hikes - not even a penny because they have used that one to death! they probably just want to raise it alot more than the penny raise so it looks good for them to say no right now, but lets see further down the road about what they do with taxes

Where do they put these polls, I'd like to vote please.... NO MORE TAXES. The politicians have it right this time, more taxes=no re-election.

BIZZARO is the "news" of the poll, and no link to it.
WHY is that ? I for one refuse to believe it if they can't back it up with some sort of supporting evidence, everyone I talk to is absolutely against more taxes.

I'm sick and tired of the one cent tax increases that never seem to go away, what have we had in polk county, something like 2 or 3 one cent sales tax increases for "schools" that just never seem to go away.

We see wasteful spending at all levels of the state, and are pretty tired of funding stuff like cars that state employees are given to drive. Nothing irritates me more than see state cars being driven on Sunday (when state offices are closed)...... why are we paying for this stuff ?
