Tom Baer is For Raising Your and Our Taxes

It appears that Thomas Baer is supporting Metro/Unified Government. The support of such a measure would indicate that Baer is for raising your and our taxes. In an answer to a WATE survey question for the commission race, that he lost this past February. His tax and spend beliefs were established. This was only four months ago.

The question was Are you for or against a consolidated city/county government? Baer responded "I could support it if the details of the merger do not negatively impact non-government jobs and replace any private enterprise jobs with government employee jobs."

The entire 14th district is in the County and his support of Metro/Unified Government will impose a tax increase on the constituents he’s seeking to represent. You and I.

Please explain the logic that supporting a governmental consolidation will raise a person's taxes. Perhaps I'm dense but I don't understand how that is possible.

I will be happy to explain it. Whe they consolidate the government and the provide trash and leaf collection and fire protection with the "metro" fire department citizens in the county that haven't been receiving those services will be taxed additionally for the services.

Now, do you see the forest?
