Janet Napolitano has stood firmly against tax relief for Arizona families and businesses, despite the fact that Arizona taxpayers overpaid by more than a billion dollars this year. She proposed a 23 percent spending increase that puts our state back into a deficit.
In expressing her continued opposition to tax cuts, she is now trying a new spin, according to a news story:
“This tax cut, in my view, is a raid on Arizona’s savings accounts,” she said.
In Janet Napolitano’s mind, your overpayment of taxes is now her money. Her budget proposes to spend your overpayment. Since that approach was proving to be unpopular, she’s now decided to call it her “savings” account. Either way, she does not want to give it back to you.
