Just another Jobs program. Increase state police but do not reduce the local law enforcement. Seems like the county cops have less to do with the new agreements with the cities yet our County leadership refuses to right size like any company would do.

I expect to soon see an increase in out of state tags. The values are a black box in how they are set. I can't wait to see the person walk out of the tag office having paid their last dollar on sales tax and get totaled soon after. Good luck collecting the tax from the insurance company.

The Fair Tax Politicians are the same goons that will soon rob hard working Americans of their Social Security while gaining big fat pensions. Politicians should not be eligible for Pensions as they serve for the people. When did Washington DC become so entitled. What do Federal Workers' generous Pensions remain untouched while the Politicians look to raid the public coffers. Except for military soldiers that served on front lines in combat for an extended period get 60% of pay for life? I think that many other areas need addressing before you look at SS.

The Fair Tax is the biggest misnomer ever devised. Most people have not thought it through. Yes, on the service the thought sounds great but the effects are very regressive and burden the citizens that can least afford. Sure it is good to say that people who now pay little or more taxes will pay more but these are the same people who can't make ends meet now. In the End, it is just a way for the wealthy to off load the burden to middle and lower classes. Now I am not saying that wealthy is a bad thing...contrary, it is a good thing and we all strive to make more but to use that wealth and power to to take advantage of the less fortunate and many examples, the less educated is nothing but pure greed and meanness and solves no problems. I see where Mr. Shafer stands.

The next time I hear entitlements mentioned, I would also like to include the bloated Public Pensions at all levels of government.

What a totally regressive idea and a backdoor way to further fill the state coffers. How about addressing the cronyism and corruption first and then the taxpayers may even believe that you are doing something positive.
