Can't blame anyone except the people who voted for issue 5, and believed him. Although to cover his bases he did say that passing issue 5 could lower fees, he never says that it would lower fees. You have to listen to politicians closely they are very tricky.
The Bell administration did exactly what I knew they would do if issue 5 passed - which is why I voted no - same as I voted the last time it was on the ballot.
Toledoans will never learn. STOP giving them $$ to pi$$ away. So now you give them access to the capital improvement funds as our roads crumble. What do you think they'll do when the roads become impassable and have to be repaired? Well, the rubber stamp council will swing into action, pass another "emergency" spending measure to fix the roads along with higher taxes to fund it.
Would you continue to give a crack addict $$ to buy crack? That is EXACTLY what we're doing with our governments - local, state and federal. As long as we allow them to confiscate large sums from our paychecks, they'll continue to fritter it away.
"Temporary" tax = permanent tax.
Learn it, live it, know it.
