If you read my post, you would have seen that I said it reeks of union etc. It smells Democrat but is sponsored by a Republican. BTW-where do you get the idea tha Republicans don't want any taxes? That smells like Democrat propaganda rather than fact. Can you cite a source other than a Dem campaign website?
This reeks of an attempt to get votes for republicans rather than unions or Democrats. Why don't we give special tax rates or not taxes for all public workers? Keep in mind republicans don't want any taxes.
What in the hell is this about? Aren't cops and firefighters supposed to be part of the community and share financial responsiblity with the rest of us, or are we creating another "special class"? This is a stupid bill that reeks of union or Democrat origin but from a Republican. Time for him to be looking for another job. Communities are having to cut back because of decreased state funding and decreasing property values and he wants to decrease their income more? I have an idea-lets let those that are NOT cops or firefighters have their property removed from the tax rolls and let the cops and firefighters pick up the load.
