Ballot Initiative Approved – Voluntarily hand over more of your hard-earned.
Once again the subject of taxes is upon us. If the 10% increase from the county and 18% increase for Port St Lucie was not enough, we are now being asked to approve a ½ cent increase in our sales tax rate.
It will be on the ballot this November. Not sure of the title of the ballot initiative but it might have titles such as:
THANK YOU, SIR. MAY I HAVE ANOTHER.
IT’S ONLY THE COST OF A PIZZA.
IT’S FOR THE CHILDREN.
Or, my favorite,
IF YOU VOTE NO, BABY SEALS WILL DIE. (more…)
