Senator Delph tells Indiana Legislature...We want our caps or we want our sales tax money back!

Hat tip to Frugal Hoosiers!!!

Whoa! Senator Mike Delph didn't forget that we got socked with a sales tax hike of 17% to offset the property tax caps ? Well, what happens if we don't get those promised caps and Pat Bauer gets his way? Senator Delph wants to make sure we get our sales tax money back. (I like Senator Delph more every day!)

He introduced SB 243 to make sure the people don't get ripped off! Here's the skinny of the bill from Frugal Hoosiers blog:
"Quite simply, this bill requires a return to a 6% sales tax if the General Assembly does not successfully work to put the property tax caps in the constitution. Doing so requires a resolution to pass in two, separately elected, General Assemblies, and passage on the general election ballot. In other words, if the property tax caps that passed in 2008 in exchange for the increase in the sales tax aren't put in the constitution, you get your money back."

How 'bout we drop the squishy cap gimmicks, rescind the unqualified sales tax increase & return to an adult discussion about repeal, where open dialogue ought be possible; on the house & senate floor.
