"So if your home costs $150,000 dollars, you'll probably end up paying about $999 in property taxes--or an increase of $50 a year."
Are you kidding? Where did Ms. Reiser get the data for her story? $999 in property taxees for a $150K house in El Paso? From my experience the tax bill for a house in that range would be more like in excess of $4000!
Correct me if I am wrong but I think your facts are more fantasy...
