If You Live in New York…MOVE

Posted by redsatellite on December 19, 2008

I moved from California for all kinds of reasons. But mainly because the leftwing loons had taken over. Now I see- their cousins– the East Coast loons have taken over New York.

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg’s $1.2 billion property tax increase won approval from the City Council on Thursday, raising homeowners’ bills by 7 percent as the city grapples with a worsening economy and disappearing revenue.

“Even though it won’t be popular, New Yorkers will understand,” Councilman Miguel Martinez of Manhattan said in explaining his support for the tax hike. “Times are hard, and we’re asking everyone to pitch in.”

Opponents warned that residents were already overtaxed. Since Mr. Bloomberg took office, property taxes have increased by 18.5 percent.

UNDERSTAND? Yah…they’ll understand they’re going BROKE. Who in their right mind would put up with that?

The property tax increase comes as Gov. David A. Paterson is pushing more than 100 new taxes and fees on items from downloaded music to nondiet sodas, and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority is moving to impose fare and toll increases.

More than a HUNDRED new taxes. 100. As in…10 x 10. No matter how you slice it….that’s ugly….and expensive.
