RINO State Sentator Charbonneau's Lake County Income tax plan passed the Senate.
Just when we have Lake County Democrats in a corner, Charbonneau gives them the means to get out of it. They've had to keep cutting, which decimates their patronage, and even borrow from Porter County, which is deeply embarrassing.
With an income tax, it is going to be back to the usual. What's worse, 1/4 of the tax goes to "economic development", which means more waste on Taj Mahal projects like Little Commiskey Park in Whiting.
You would think that a Republican would understand that the lack of a county income tax is the best economic development driver Lake County could have.
Of course, perhaps because Charbonneau is from Valpo, he sees that Lake County had an unfair advantage by not having the tax.
