State Revenue not growing; Minner renews call for tax hike. 23 May, 2007

Posted by stoptaxing in State.

Income tax and real estate transfers taxes are down.  The spending spree has been spent. The Governor’s first answer is a tax hike.  Wrong Answer.

 Now it is time for the tough decisions.  Will we set priorities or will we continue to play special interest games and spread the money poll around based upon other factors.

We need to set priorities.  We need to take care of the prison health system.  We need either to fund the school construction or repeal the mandatory full day Kidnergarten.   We need to address medicaid funding so people can get medicine and hospitals are paid fairly.  We need to invest in providing and infrastructure for economic vitality.   We need to repeal some of the silly mandatory sentences and provide room for child predators we are currently letting out.  We need to say no to bilingual duplication.  We need to say no to making the state a hugeland holder.  We need to be weary of the state’s government employment growth.  We need to have a review of all transportation projects based upon local desire, safety concerns, and time urgency.
