Opinion

Vouching for vouchers?

I’ll admit it. During my time in the Florida Legislature I was generally supportive of school vouchers. I bought into the argument that vouchers were similar in effect to the GI bill and the Florida Resident Access Grants, better known as FRAG.

I have been trying to figure out the property taxes.  We are both residents and like the 3% cap, but what about raising the cap for all home owners to 6%/year keeping the $25,000 homeowners deduction, that way we all share the burden equally.  As for the insurance they seem to be a bunch of crookes, and should be penilized.
How does this sound, I would like a response to this e-mail
