The House Budget Committee just voted to raise your taxes more.
Rep. Jim Wayne said legislators would be "dead-beat parents" if they didn't raise taxes.
"All of us want more in the budget and the only way we are going to get more in the budget is to raise more revenue," Speaker Pro Tem Larry Clark said, summing up perfectly what is wrong with our state government.
The bill they voted on was HB 262. As of this writing, not all the details are available. Hope to have it updated tonight.
Rep. Bob DeWeese and Rep. Danny Ford called out House Dem leaders for trying to cram the tax increase down their throats. Rep. DeWeese also complained that legislators will have to vote on the budget without being able to read it.
Rep. Keith Hall suggested there would be "blood on my hands" if he didn't vote for the tax increase. He voted for it.
