It is Official- Ted Strickland Wants to Raise Taxes!
From the AP:
COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio governor Ted Strickland has proposed freezing income tax cuts to fund education in the wake of a court decision that could halt his plan to put lottery slot machines at racetracks.
Strickland on Wednesday suggested postponing the final year of the overall 21 percent tax cut for at least two years, raising about $850 million.
I’m going to pull a George Stephanopoulos, and read from the dictionary, which defines a tax as a “charge against a citizen’s person or property or activity for the support of government.”
So $850 million, which would have been in taxpayers’ pockets, will no longer be there. And this is in addition to the $1.1 billion fee increases which were already part of Strickland’s budget.
Taxin’ Ted Strickland has fully arrived, just in time for John Kasich to blast him to hell.
