    Don’t make it worse

    It’s interesting that the paper continues to support the Legislature’s tax proposals. You seem to think they know what they are doing. They don’t.

    The proposals they are making are virtually the same plan Mitt Romney proposed during the presidential race. It was a bad idea then and still is. I wonder if the paper would have given more critical evaluations if Romney won and this was the federal plan. The funny part is that these changes will create, for some taxpayers, the position of paying taxes on their taxes.

    George Orwell will be laughing in his grave. A new definition of irony. The legislators do not understand the current tax system. There are major problems with our current system that they don’t seem to want to address. Fix the system we have first before you screw it up any more.
