Can somebody help me understand this logic from the folks on Right-Wing Avenue about the House budget?
The temporary tax increase from last year is still in there so claims of no tax increase are just wrong.
I mentioned this in today’s column about the House budget, but I still can’t really figure it out. They think that any budget that does not repeal a tax means that it raises taxes. So if the General Assembly didn’t raise taxes for the next ten years, every budget passed until then would include a tax hike because they increased taxes in the 2009 session?
I wonder if that means that every budget passed the year after taxes are reduced includes a tax cut. It’s probably best not to try to figure it out.
