We elect people to do the things that are good for us, but mostly they do what is good for them.
I saw in the news that 47% of Americans pay no income taxes. That includes families of four making $50K per year. I have to figure out how to get in on that no income taxes deal.
Speaking of taxes, they are on the minds of our state leaders these days, us being broke and all.
We are on the verge of voting on a proposal to adding a penny to our state's sales tax and the hysteria, pro and con, is running high.
On the government side, predictions are being made that unless the increase passes, 20,000 government workers will lose their jobs. On the other hand, if the sales tax goes up, 7,000 retail workers will get the ax, because of decreased buying by the public. What to do?
We are only voting on this idea because our state bigwigs lack the courage to just vote the tax in themselves. There is slim chance that the people will vote for this idea.
