Our dear Gov. Ed Rendell said it made him "sad" to propose a 16 percent boost in the state personal income tax for the next three years (believe that last part?). Well, it makes me mad to have to think about paying it! We the taxpayers are having to tighten our belts and live within our means while our governor and our president want to steal more of what little is left. Why not do some belt tightening in the operation of government?
Let's hope our state legislators will exercise some common sense and overrule this onerous tax hike proposal.
