Tax Hikes

KARE11 ran a story on the tax hikes- of course they are in St. Paul interviewing liberals who say "if it means lower class sizes and better roads and fixing our budget problem, then fine"....I wonder if these people would voluntarily send a check to the state. No- it never works that way.

There's a poll on the KARE11 website homepage:

Are you willing to pay more state taxes to help erase the $4.6B Minnesota budget shortfall?

Yes
Use sin taxes (alcohol and cigarettes)
No
Cut government

As of 10pm last night-and about 3,700 votes:

10% said "yes" 67% said "no" or "cut government"

I hope they post those results on an upcoming newscast. The "bleeding heart" liberal stories on that news channel just sicken me.

This just proves the point that everyone loves free hot dogs until the question is asked if you will pay for them :)

Saw the same story. Loved the results.

By the way, raising taxes NEVER lowers class size. It's just a farce government wants the public to believe. I had twenty-seven first graders (6-7 year olds) my last year teaching. Bahaha...
