Senator Ann Rest made a big admission last Friday, May 10th in the conference committee for HF 1938 – the Tax Policy Omnibus Bill. She told the committee that Democrats have an “insatiable appetite for raising taxes.”
To anyone who has been paying attention the last few months, this sounds like an obvious fact. Democrats have already passed crazy tax increases in 2023, including the metro sales tax increase and the proposed delivery tax.
Senator Ann “put me to” Rest’s sleepy admission comes at the peril of her own party, which campaigned on tax cuts. In fact, Democrats were bragging about “historic tax cuts” earlier this year. The final version of HF 1938 has yet to be seen, but it is likely that it will not be meeting the “historic” tax cut claim that Democrats have been making.
