Stop The Sales Tax Hike May 21


STOP THE SALES TAX HIKE MAY 21

 

To my Osceola County Commissioner:

 

WHEREAS: The referendum supporting the tax hike does not require the new funds to be spent on roads; and

 

WHEREAS: Instead, it can be used for any transportation project, including sidewalks, nature trails, bike paths, Lynx, SunRail; and

 

WHEREAS: Higher taxes will hurt hard working families and those living on a fixed income; and

 

WHEREAS: Even a small tax increase will have a dramatic increase on the local cost of living;

 

THEREFORE: As your constituents we demand that you oppose any new tax and fee increases.

To my Osceola County Commissioner:

 

WHEREAS: Osceola County's bloated budget includes multiple examples of waste; and

 

WHEREAS: Higher taxes will hurt hard working families and those living on a fixed income; and

 

WHEREAS: Government structure, cronyism, waste, fraud, and abuse, are the cause of inadequate services, NOT lack of funding; and

 

WHEREAS: Even a small tax increase will have a dramatic increase on the local cost of living;

 

THEREFORE: As your constituents we demand that you oppose any new tax and fee increases.

    Governments have an insatiable appetite for taxes, fees, and tolls. Revenues will never be enough for governments. Taxes are already at confiscatory levels in Osceola County. The tourists will pay the sales tax increase for a week or two. I will be paying it for 52 weeks. Actually I will be paying very little as I will NOT spend anything at any business in Osceola County if this obscene tax passes.

    Pay cuts for politicians and responsible stewardship of tax dollars and accountability on spending.

    Traffic will never get better no matter what they do anyway, as long as development contines to go uncontrolled. Look at all the roads they improved in the past that are now the congested problems again. Fix that first or your wasting money.

    Complete government greed, lies and just plain theft. All this under the false pretense they will improve traffic. For over 2 years they’ve obstructed traffic by dragging out a project on HWY 192. All this money will do is line the pockets of crooked politicians. I’d say that is especially true for Democrats who have no shame or scruples.

    With over $23,000 impact fee for each new home plus yearly tax Osceola gets way more money needed. Commissioners never get enough money to spend.

    Raising the sales tax will be another reason for shoppers of Osceola County to spend their hard earned money elsewhere. Stop the tax.
