Not buying Hill’s tax relief

Charlie Brown always talks himself into believing that Lucy will let him kick the football. But as we’ve seen repeatedly in the comics, she always pulls it away at the last second.

Some voters may behave a little like Charlie Brown when they buy into politicians’ rhetoric on property tax reform. Remember when Republican Govs. Racicot and Martz said they were going to cut property taxes if we elected them? Remember how our property taxes went up instead? There may have been tax relief for the richest corporations with headquarters in Fort Worth and Houston and second homes on Flathead Lake, but that actually shifted the tax burden onto Montana’s homeowners and small businesses.

Rick Hill’s plan has the same fatal flaws. Don’t rush over and try to kick that football! Don’t fall for it! Vote for Steve Bullock and keep Montana moving forward.
