Bringing in $30 million to cover a $10 million Medicaid deficit per year didn't quite work. So Anthony "Grinch" Picente will RAISE OUR TAXES by 0.75% or 9.4% higher than it should be. What's more, 8.75% will still be 9 cents tax on a $1 purchase. It will mean one cent less for a Little Caesar's pizza and less than $50 savings on a new car. What a lovely Christmas present. Maybe we can vote your ass out of office for a future Christmas present.
