LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Metro's tax plan will lead to higher prices
Two new taxes now? Will the timing of the new financial burden of Metro's Measure 26-210 create more homeless? They claim these new taxes will help the homeless. It just might create more instead.
Asking for thousands of dollars in new taxes from families and businesses that are already struggling to pay their mortgage and car payments and trying to keep employees is unacceptable.
The costs of implementing more taxes always finds its way to the prices of things we buy. More taxes, higher prices. And right now is not the time for higher prices. Please join me in voting "no" on Metro's new taxes measure 26-210. We can't afford it, especially right now.
