Vote “no” to TSPLOST, “yes” to cut spending
To the Editor:
Government will not cut your taxes. They will find some excuse to spend every penny they can steal from us serfs.
Read the article carefully in last week's paper. Beware of phrases like, "revenue projections," "consider using to offset property taxes," "hope to alleviate property tax." The devils in the details.
Check their math: 28,000 jobs for every billion. Projected 19 billion. That equals 532,000 jobs. Georgia has 425,000 unemployed. If a penny can do that much, why not a dime? Problem solved.
The numbers don't add up. Don't you think we pay enough taxes? Don't be fooled into voting to pay more taxes. Demand they cut spending.
Government's a joke.
