Dear fellow tax hikers, we are very disenchanted to learn the results of an Enquirer poll showing that area citizens oppose a big Sales Tax increase to pay for $500 million of local arts projects. We firmly believe that arts needs should come before other government services. Everyone should pay for "the arts" whether they want to or not.
This poll shows only 33% of area residents support the tax increase with 46% already opposed. In Hamilton County the numbers were slightly better but still awful, with 39% in support and 47% opposed.
Arts and entertainment are possibly our most important government programs. The last time Hamilton County raised the Sales Tax was for the lovely stadiums and that sure worked out well. A new Sales Tax hike could be even better.
The need for taxpayer-funded arts projects is too important to allow things like fiscal responsibility to get in our way. We need higher taxes. We can't think of a more important government program than a Sales Tax increase for many years to ensure that every single Hamilton County resident pays their share of a $500 million Arts bonanza. Tax us more!
