Hey Mr. Mathematician. Since

Hey Mr. Mathematician. Since you're helping me figure out my daily budget, why don't you factor in my property tax increase from this year and my home valuation tax increase from last year. While you're at it don't forget my water rate increase, my state-approved electricity rate increase, and my sky-high grocery bill increase. It's so easy for you to smart-off about hitting the vending machines. In reality the choices I'm faced with making have more to do with buying organic versus non-organic milk and eggs for my children; seeing the doctor when I'm sick or waiting it out; forgoing dental appointments for myself so that I can afford to take my kids instead. See, my family works hard to live within our means - I don't have the luxury of buying a daily latte. I don't complain about the belt tightening at my house. I just ask that everyone who voted to pass this bond pay their equal share with a sales tax increase, instead of only making property owners pay.
