RAINING PENNIES IN GEORGIA
It is raining pennies in most counties of Georgia because the SPLOSTS have been voted in because of low voter turnout for special elections. You see, Citizens have so many pennies floating around their households that 20 to 40% increases in sales taxes are a moot point. Now we have the Utilities Commission approving a rate hike for Georgia Power yet again that will add about $5 to the average consumer power bill. That is an automatic raise for Georgia and all of the counties that collect sales taxes, and puts another nail in the coffin for helpless taxpayers living on fixed incomes. Just take a bucket outdoors and see if you can catch some falling pennies to help you through the drought. If that does not work, then call the Mayor's office, and ask C Jack something like this, "Mr. Mayor can you add me to this year's budget appropriations?"
