To the Editor:
West Virginia gubernatorial candidate Jim Justice was, for sure and for certain, steadfast and resolute in his personal pledge against tax increases.
However, newly elected Governor Justice, in his recent “State of the State” address to a joint session of the West Virginia Legislature, suddenly was not at all so sure nor so certain.
Much like “Alice in Wonderland”, he lost his way. He now proposes a boatload of regressive new taxes and fees. Even worse, these new taxes and fees would disproportionately distress our working poor.
If enacted, this government money grab will reach even deeper into the almost empty pockets of already struggling Mountaineers.
They also would be the highest taxes and fees in our West Virginia state history.
So, where’s the “Justice” in these profoundly poisonous proposals?
Sic Semper Montani Liberi!
Please share this message with others, and ask them to go and do likewise.
