Politicians, take note

I watched the State of the State address today. In order to help close the budget deficit, Governor Daniels proposes a one year, one percent surtax on individuals making over $100,000 a year, promising a veto of any attempt to extend the tax, and veto any tax that is being used to avoid needed budget cuts.

I guarantee that taxpayers will be more amenable to a temporary tax. And anyone who demands that TAX CUTS be temporary who doesn't also applaud this temporary TAX INCREASE is a true hypocrite.

A good line from the speech: in acknowledging that cuts to programs will be tough, he made the important point that "taxpayers deserve compassion too." It's a point all politicians should remember.
