End the property tax nightmare!

  1. I have to say I was disappointed to see that taxnightmare has joined the 1% vs 99% campaign. The problem is not the 1%. They are in the same property tax boat we all are in. The problem is with our elected officials that have continually increased their hold on all of us by growing government is such a reckless manner financially. The public unions have wielded much more power than the taxpayer and our elected officials lean their way more than they lean our way. There is so much pandering to the union interest as a result of their contributions to campaigns and threats of slowdown or strikes. No one is left to defend our position. We depend on the elected officials to be balanced but we have been disappointed in their lack of interest. I feel they think we are a bottomless pit of revenue. The Public Unions are also a disappointment in that they are not out there trying to make their contribution to society more efficient, responsible, and respectful. I would like to see taxnightmare focus on issues that will identify the waste and over spending and not be dragged into a useless 1% vs 99% debate. If you took all of the 1% money the problem would not be solved. The problem remains and will only get worse if there is no control of the massive unfunded mandates and unfunded liabilities in public pensions and runaway entitlement spending. Our elective officials should be actively pursuing these issues along with controlling waste and corruption. We are indeed tired of greed and waste and hopefully Albany does wake up.

  2. But the runaway cost of government is not the problem… because no matter what it is, you still need to be able to afford the tax that funds it – which is the property tax.

    But once the tax is limited to a reasonable portion of one’s income – the level of spending becomes moot and inconsequential – which is what the Breaker accomplishes.

    Once enacted, any runaway spending will self correct by virtue of there not being enough money to fund it.
