Picked up from the Coalition of New Hampshire Tax Payers, Republican State Legislator Chris Nevins, in a guest post, takes issue with how some New Hampshire law makers are the running the numbers on the State Budget.
Compare what we paid in General Fund taxes during the last biennial budget (2006-07) of $2.714 billion to the current budget of 2008-09 of $3.189 billion. If you again do the math (new math or the old math) you can see that the “pound of flesh” the majority party extracted from us is indeed 17.5 percent.
17.5% would make a really nice raise; too bad it’s more like a pay cut for New Hampshire Residents. Read it all here at CNHT.org and decide for yourself.
