LePage raises taxes!

Post by T on Sun Jan 27, 2013 6:49 pm

Governor has chosen tax increases

"At this time, the governor is not interested in tax hikes," administration spokesperson Adrienne Bennett told the Sun Journal Thursday.

Actually, at this time Gov. Paul LePage is all about hiking taxes, property taxes.

While the governor may tell himself he is not proposing to raise taxes, when you start cutting tax discounts for property taxpayers you are increasing what they pay.

And that, in anyone's book, is a tax increase.

The governor has, among other things, proposed ending the Homestead Property Tax Exemption for those under 65.

To summarize...

Because LePage wants to protect the $423 million dollar income tax cut for the wealthiest, the state is in financial trouble.

How to solve it?

Pass the problem along to the municipalities and create a situation where the people who can least afford it will pay more or go without.

The rich get richer...

What a wonderful Tea Party idea! applause
