KILL THE TRAVIS MEDICAL SCHOOL TAX!!
Folks, our water bills are going up. Soon our electric bills will be going up. Federal income taxes will be going up. Obamacare is going into effect. The City of Austin is trying to pass a large $385 million bond package, paid with by property taxes. Giving to United Way of Austin is way down because people simply don't have the money to give to charity. And on top of ALL this, some fool thinks Travis County property owners need to have a large tax increase to pay for yet another federally funded medical program.
Killing the medical school tax is my #1 campaign item for this fall. And it can be done. Basically it is being pushed by Sen. Kirk Watson and a group of education, medical and political people who want a bunch of lavish jobs and consulting fees at the taxpayer and property owners' expense. It is a group of a hundred people or so who want the rest of the community to fund lavish jobs in medical/education. It is yet more government control of the economy, another example of the Obamacare mentality.
This publicly funded medical program is a lavish tax increase of 5 cents per $100 valuation. If you have a $200,000 home you will see a tax increase of $100/year forever. That is $1,000 blown up the ass of socialist government funded bureaucrats over the next ten years. If you have a $400,000 home, your cost will be $2,000 over the next 10 years.
Again, I don't want your money; I want you to use your mouth and email provider to tell everyone you know to defeat yet another massive tax increase in Travis County.
