Because it seems very clear that you are exactly like all of the other greedy, envious people, who cannot wait for someone else to work as a slave to the state.
How do people become so twisted and so evil?
Me? Has nothing to do with me. Has to do with the fact that we pay taxes because we are collectively purchasing things we use, like infrastructure. The rich use a lot more of that than the poor. How do you think people get rich? They have to have access to resources, ways to get around this huge country, an infrastructure for carrying their ads, etc. They use more of that stuff. A lot more. It is not unreasonable to ask them to pay a bit more.
You're being beyond paranoid and your assertion is ridiculous. I sure as hell don't want your money, if it will turn me into someone like you. But pay for what you use.

Didn't this already happen in Minnesota like six years ago?

Personally, this demostrates that all the elected officials are incompant in the job of managing the State. Budget deadlines are known, they fail to complete the job. What is alarming to me is the (bold) $5B in the hole the State is in, and while wanting to raise taxes the Gov also wants to raise spending? Anyone explain how that will get rid of the $5B and have a balenced budget? If it will, didn't know the State had that many wealthy.
