With our state leaders trying push to "some GREAT TAX CUTS" the fact remains that HB361, HB5703,HB1005 & SB760 are tax cuts the state would like to make but yet those very tax cuts, althought a nice thought, hurt the very people their are suppose to help. Just like the Reagan & Bush I tax cuts before, local govt would be forced to pick up the tab or cut programs that serve its residents. Not welfare programming. Programs like Cops, Fire Dept, City Parks, Schools. The choice left to City & County Govt is clear make cuts or raise property taxes. That's the kind of tax cuts our republican leadership has planned for us. It can be better & the residents of Tampa as well as the rest of the bay area deserve better.
The Gov. Claims he is the business Gov. It's all about jobs he says but how can a state employ people who do not have a education. How can we ask local Govt, that have already been pressed to the max, they have made painful cuts, now they face even greater pressures thanks to the state.
We must stop those bills!
