This is where the big problem lies. The balance of the nation’s budget had led to local governments raising property values and thus raising property taxes. High property taxes raise rents, they raise food prices, and they raise the general cost of living. That’s because stores renting or owning properties must also pay property tax or pay higher rents and thus must raise prices to make profit.
It has become too expensive to live in the U.S. Wages still stay low while everything else goes up including health insurance premiums and gas prices. EVEN THOUGH American oil has been drilling non-stop off-shore. The elites are bleeding dry Americans. They are bleeding us dry.
