Hawaii legislature considers raising taxes

Are you kidding? Two articles in today’s Honolulu Advertiser need to be juxtaposed. One covered the aforementioned tax increase consideration and the other looked at solutions by local business folks. The business leaders had logical, business based ideas; your govenrment wants to raise taxes.

Class discrimination. Plain and simple. If you are an employee of the government, or an elected government official there is one standard. If you work in the private sector as an employee, owner or executive (not working in the financial industry) there is another standard. Economic downturns in the private sector require that you take layoffs, lose medical coverage, take pay cuts and lose your pension. The public sector solution: raises taxes. It is absurd.
