Yes I believe WE did it! For two days we've been talking about what it would take to defeat this tax increase and then yesterday caller after caller; texter after texter kept saying "thanks for reminding me".
These people on the left come to us in the dead of night. Have you noticed they never ask us for these things in November when lots of people go to the Polls? They have their backers in the media who confuse the issue by hiding the real truth too.
Over and over again, we were told 'it's a one penny increase', which is factually accurate so you can't accuse them of lying, but it is not the actual truth. In Polk County, the proposal was for a 16% PLUS increase in the Sales Tax - going from 6 cents to 7 cents.
But we were on to them and we beat them... THIS time!
I have a feeling they will come back at us in the not too distant future and try again. Our legislature needs to act and move these votes to November where they belong.
In the meantime, enjoy this victory. All it takes is for good people to remember to go to the Polls. We remembered and we shut them down!
