Democrats never met a tax they didn’t like
Because I live in one of the more overtaxed counties in the country, it was disconcerting to read in The News that Erie County Legislator Patrick Burke is proposing a 3 percent increase in the hotel occupancy tax to fund major water quality projects. Buffalo has never been a mecca for tourists. I don’t think this will help.
This November, many Democrats will be scratching their heads, wondering how someone like Donald Trump could be elected president. One of the reasons, is that most Democrats never met a tax they didn’t like.
