State House Democrats want to impose a new capital gains tax. They say it will only be levied against the rich. The money will be used for, of course, schoolchildren, the mentally ill and homeless kids.
Does anyone actually believe once a new tax is in place, it will only affect those dirty rotten rich people? Once in place, the new tax will soon affect anyone who has saved money.
If you disagree with new taxes, according to state Rep. Laurie Jinkins (Viewpoint, 6-7), you really want kids to be uneducated, the mentally ill untreated and poor children unfed. No, we want wise spending and no new taxes.
