Tax Reform? PDF Print E-mail
Written by Bethanie   

I was putting up lawn signs the other day and I stopped to visit with a homeowner. After a rousing discussion about personal responsibility, teaching Chinese, and living overseas, I closed up the car and drove away. Part way down the road I looked back and saw a black cat sitting in my car. Now, I’m not superstitious, but I do think it’s bad form to take off with the family pet.

 

As I drove the cat home and placed it carefully back in its yard, I couldn’t help but think of the latest “tax reform.”  Much like my attractive, but not too valuable signs, a significant portion of our legislature voted to give us a nice, but not too valuable tax cut. It doesn’t amount to much for us middle-income earners. In return, the legislature is taking off with something of greater value, like the family pet. What they are taking is any meaningful investment in education. They are taking our children’s future. Now That is really scary.
