Repeal of Land Transfer Tax imminent

Small governments crippled by proponents of small government:

The measure to eliminate the land transfer tax option headed to Gov. Beverly Perdue's desk after the Senate approved it 40-8. The House approved it earlier this month.

"What we're trying to do is to eliminate a bill that's a potential (obstacle) to affordable housing," Sen. Bob Rucho, R-Mecklenburg, said during the brief debate.

Which overlooks the glaringly obvious: If the Hometicks can afford to contribute hundreds of thousands to candidates and spend millions here and there on ballot battles, I'd say the "affordable housing" mystery has been solved.



let's make homes more affordable....we just won't have any public roads, sewers or schools in the area....

Vote Democratic, the ass you save may be your own.
