Our governor and Legislature have come up with some more voodoo economics.

Last year, the governor requested and the Legislature passed a tax cut mainly to the rich, which cost $100 million. I, and I’m fairly sure most other voters, thought they had a way to pay for this cut. We now know they had no idea where the money would come from.

Now they want to push the problem onto the towns and cities (which are already operating on bare-bones budgets), causing them to raise property taxes.

The governor and Legislature must think we are all fools. As I always say, “Stupid is as stupid does.” The time has come to kick these career politicians where it hurts — right out of office.
