Great. County coffers are "fat" with federal cash (which we are going to have to pay, probably sooner rather than later) and we still get whacked with a local tax hike. When is this going to end?
Why is it that in hard times the citizen cuts back yet government spends more?
Enough is enough.
I have bills and a family to take care of, and a pay cut to do it all. Now I'm going to be expected to pay more in taxes because they can't stop spending money. Double digit unemployment, property values declining, yet the government continues to build. These grants are not free.
The New American Way. Work harder for less pay, and give more back so the government can spend it as they see fit.
I have always said, the rich get richer (goverment this time) and the rest of us pay for it.
Does anyone here know what stimulus means?
Stimulus is money that the government does not have so it borrows from other countries adding to our national deficit. Then it hands out the money in an attempt to "spur" the economy. We are then taxed to death to help pay back the money borrowed. Since there are more tax receivers than tax payers, the government prints money to pay loans. Thus, causing inflation and adding to the fall of the dollar.
Does that about answer your question.
