Strange: A Liberal Really Hates Paying Taxes She Voted For

This goes perfectly with the notion of Someone Else

(MyStatesman) “I’m at the breaking point,” said Gretchen Gardner, an Austin artist who bought a 1930s bungalow in the Bouldin neighborhood just south of downtown in 1991 and has watched her property tax bill soar to $8,500 this year.

“It’s not because I don’t like paying taxes,” said Gardner, who attended both meetings. “I have voted for every park, every library, all the school improvements, for light rail, for anything that will make this city better. But now I can’t afford to live here anymore. I’ll protest my appraisal notice, but that’s not enough. Someone needs to step in and address the big picture.”

You have to love when liberal policies that liberals support beat liberals with the Carolina Reaper covered Cluebat Of Destiny. This reminds me of the lady who said she wholeheartedly supported Obamacare, she just didn’t think she would have to pay for it.

I’m really just bringing this to your attention for this quote alone. Voting and paying are different endeavors entirely. Often, when one has to pay for the things one has voted to fund, that decision becomes less flippant. This is a comment, less on the specifics of Texas’ or Austin’s tax system than the blaring disconnect between liberals in Austin who are voting for higher taxes and the actual paying of the taxes. Which, as it turns out, is painful, discouraging, and can be a detriment to the fabric of the city.

And they keep bringing their big government big tax policies from other areas they’ve ruined, as Grouchy Old Cripple notes.

BTW, this fits perfectly with the notion of Warmists not wanting to pay the price for their “climate change” prescriptions. But, then, most Warmists are Lefties, and have the same notions on taxes. They’re super-mega-awesome!!!! Until the same liberals have to pay for them.

    Since it’s the cornerstone of your “intellectual” (lol) position, why don’t you explain the mechanism by which we liberals exempt ourselves from all the policies we favor.

    Let me know ’cause I pay a ton of taxes every year.

    Austin has turned in to a liberal haven that has turned in to the new LA or SanFran of the plains. San Antonio is not far behind.
