At Least 33 Taxpayers Need Urgent Rescue

(With sincere apologies to the 33 miners in Chile)

There are at least 33 Coral Gables and Miami-Dade taxpayers urgently needing rescue from steadily rising property taxes.  Taxes are exhausting people’s savings, as gradually diminishing budgets are not furnishing them real financial relief.

The 33 taxpayers are praying for some comfort, but government managers, unions and employees are fighting to retain the inflated benefits dispensed by city commissions during ten years or more of unrealistic, mushrooming property values.

Since that wholly artificial prosperity will not be repeated in our lifetime, the 33 taxpayers urge the government to come back to earth, and make real, permanent and significant budget cuts while the economy returns to normal in five or six years.

That is the first great step in the rescue of the 33 taxpayers.
