Angry Fairfax County Taxpayers Denounce Proposed Budget.
Last night the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors met to discuss a proposed budget which has many taxpayers upset, or at least it should. According to the Fairfax County Taxpayers Alliance the proposed budget includes 40 million dollars in new and increased fees, and for many residents a $1500 tax hike.
The Taxpayers Alliance believe that a 72-cent real estate tax rate instead of the $1.05 is all that is necessary for the county to meet all basic obligations for its citizens. Sadly, with the Democrats in charge of the Board; tax, spend, promise, and fail is the strategy.
The Taxpayers Alliance points out that so far this decade spending has out paced both population growth and inflation.
