I agree 100% with your points.
However, the state of Texas does need a revenue stream to exist.
What is Medina offering as a replacement? Without addressing this issue, she is just blowing smoke. IMHO
I just posted this link on another thread but it seems this thread is badly in need of some information on Medina’s plans to replace property tax and assure no gun registration comes to Texas.
I found this video of Debra Medina, challenger for Governor in the upcoming primary, in which she is very forthcoming with her plans and ideas to go another direction.
This is part 4, http://www.youtube.com/watchv=nRq1Wz87MFg&feature=related
and the next one, part 5 is even better as she explains with clarity and detail how eliminating property tax will explode the Texas economy. Part 3 is the beginning of her speaking to a group in East Texas and in it she explains how and why she decided to run for Gov in 2008 before the Tea Party, etc. movements.
Enjoy and please pass along to others seeking information.
Doesn’t the state of Texas already have a sales tax and other taxes? Why do they need property taxes to fund your socialist programs?
