Voting down a levy is NOT "turning your backs on the children"!!!!

What a SHAMELESS display of ignorance!!

As in Marshall County the levy passed with the idea that this not increase your taxes. What the levy should be based on a certain set money value not a percentage of your land value. If it is for 7 million than you taxes would go up or down based on value. Too often the excess from a set percentage is wasted and not given back to the taxpayer. The reason for a budget is to keep government spending in check. But, it is good the levies did pass but we need a system where extra money is returned to the taxpayer not used for luxuries.
