It’s a shame that the voters are so easily manipulated, but sadly, this happens all the time. We tend to get wrapped up in the details and merits of the proposal, but fail to ask the larger questions. When looking at a tax increase, two questions should be asked:
1.) Why can’t they manage the money we have already sent them to run the proper functions of government?
2.) The government already receives a percentage of our income in taxes; for what reason must they receive a greater percentage of our income to continue the same standard? The infrastructure is already paid for, so shouldn’t maintenance be covered in the day to day operations budget?
