I'm hoping this might be my last post on the regressive Senior Tax Cut for a while.
But there is one thing worth noting. Who was behind this little gem? Why it would be none other than Gail Bates and Chris Merdon. Thats right, they engineered this in a blatant attempt to embarrass Ken Ulman. They purposely scheduled the vote for the week before the election. They purposely flooded the hearing room with their flunkies to pressure the Dems. They purposely flooded the County with false information concerning the tax cut for the rich, framing it instead as an emergency measure to keep poor seniors from having their homes foreclosed upon.
I'm glad to see the voters made the right choice. Let's hope the County Council and County Executive make the right choice too.
