Tax break for select few won’t solve state’s woes

So, our esteemed governor wants to create tax-free zones to attract new business. How rosy is that?

In the meantime, my overtaxed children, grandchildren and eventually great-grandchildren will probably have to pay higher taxes to make up for it. They will probably also have to pay higher prices on goods from non-tax-free companies that will have to charge more to make up for the tax difference.

Wouldn’t it make more sense to remove the excess layers of bureaucracy and obscene benefits received by that group and lower the taxes for everyone? Then perhaps so many won’t have to do as I did and leave the state to prosper. Unlike myself, most don’t come back.

How long do you think it will be before there is a class-action suit by all the peons not included in this fantastic pledge? If they don’t have to pay taxes, then neither should I!
