Please do not fall for County Executive Joel Giambra's scare tactics on what could happen if the sales tax is not increased. These same scare tactics were used the last few times the sales tax was increased, along with promises that the hike would be temporary.
The county and state are now used to having the extra tax revenue and we might never see a decrease in sales tax. The county has the nerve to ask for more money from all of us. We should be outraged by how much of our money is being wasted on duplication of effort between 32 different governments. We need to demand change and reform of Medicaid and government structure, which is the true cause of our financial problems.
