Yes, the state of florida gets enough tax money. That's why we're having
near record budget cuts.
Look, I'm not a big fan of taxes, but let's not be silly and make
emotional statements without the facts to back them up. If we want/expect
to have a certain level of government services, we're going to need to
generate the revenue somewhere.
Now, personally I wish we'd continue to tax certain industries rather than
giving them large breaks for 'economic development' while squeezing the
middle class to make up for the revenue shortfall.

Now if I could just get Dell to save the state $30 (or whatever) a PC and
let us order them without windows licenses (which we don't use anyway),
I'd be a happy man.
