At 1:30PM Today the House is going to vote to raise taxes. Call your State Representative and Urge them to vote NO. (Switchboard 1 800 522 8502) They need 76 votes to pass.
The idea, expected to go to the state House Wednesday in slightly different form, would raise taxes on cigarettes, fuel, alcoholic beverages and petroleum production. That would produce enough money to fill the state budget hole, prevent awful cuts to mental health, health and human services, fund pay raises for teachers and state employees, recreate the earned income tax credit for working poor parents and get the state’s long-term fiscal house a lot closer to being in order.
