Arizona’s taxpaying geese tired of laying those golden eggs
Editorial writer Kathleen Ingley’s “Quick Hit” in this morning’s Arizona Republic is titled: Stop treating ”tax” like a dirty word. A classic tax-and-spender she berates attempts to rein in undisciplined spending.
Like the leftist newspaper that employs her and the president whose out-of-control spending policies they support, Ingley believes the American taxpayer, in general — and the Arizona taxpayer, specifically — are a constant and dependable stream of revenue.
Today she opines that limiting property taxes — demonizing them, she claims, is “destructive.”
Unlike the newspaper, Seeing Red AZ supports Prop 13 Arizona. This week, Chairwoman Lynne Weaver filed documents with the Secretary of State’s Office launching the campaign to qualify the proposal for the 2012 election. The group must submit 256,213 valid voter signatures by July 5, 2012 to qualify. The initiative allows property owners to seize control of their run-away property taxes by imposing a solid constitutional tax limit.
Take time to review the group’s interactive and comprehensive website and read the text of the proposed Constitutional Amendment. Volunteer to help. Unlike many campaigns we are asked to support, this effort is actually in our own best interests.
It’s about time!
