Would you like fires with that?



Bah, humbug. Amendment 1 passed. Homeowners look to save maybe $20/month on their property taxes, thus saving us from squandering our hard-earned money on frivolities like schools, firefighters, police [nice to have, when they're not overstepping some boundaries]....

They are not going to save anything because the school taxes have to rise to pay for all of the mandates, and the school taxes are specifically excluded from the Amendment.

This was for older voters and long time Floridians who have houses valued $500K and better. they can now trade up without worrying about losing their special privileges.

typical republican ploy, and it just confirms that i was correct in my knee-jerk reaction to this one --- vote NO just because it's something the republicans are pushing.
