Lawmakers share blame in mortgage foreclosures | Letter

Our state legislators love the photo opportunities that ribbon cutting ceremonies provide whenever a new business opens, publishing the photos in their weekly newsletters to imply they should get some credit for business startups.

How about this for a photo op? Consider all the tax sales each year due to  outrageously high, ever-increasing school property taxes; they number in the thousands. Have the legislators go to all those homes in their districts and pose for a photo with each family being forced out of their home. After all, legislators are more  more responsible for the devastating results of this most regressive, cruel and inhumane archaic system of taxation.

Legislators are responsible for granting school districts taxing authority. School boards members who typically have no experience in dealing with multi-million dollar budgets raise your taxes whenever they want more money. Yet a narrow majority of legislators want to keep it this way because it's convenient for them to keep putting the blame on the school districts for raising your taxes.

The Property tax Independence Act, HB/SB 76, would completely eliminate school property taxes and shift the way schools are funded, through an increase in the income and sales taxes. It has bipartisan support. Call your representative, senator and the governor and tell them to end this regressive, inhumane, punishing tax.
