Here's an idea most elected officials don't like; why not let the issue be decided by those of us who will have to pay for the increase in taxes. A governement by the people, for the people, of the people? Why not place the issue on the ballow? Those in favor and those in opposition will each put forth their positions and the people could vote on whether they wish to assume more tax obligations. I, myself, worry for my neighbors who can barely stand the present economic downturn.
