Sales Tax Increase Approved
The two Democratic Hamilton County Commissioners approved a half cent sales tax hike to fund a new jail and other public safety initiatives. The lone Republican is against it. It will be interesting to hear any conservatives whine about increasing taxes without a referendum. I'd would have liked a referendum before we went to war in Iraq, but I am just an insignificant voter, so who am I to complain. Let the beatings begin.
