Leslie’s Lament over Not Raising Taxes

Sen. Sheila Leslie, D-Reno, chairwoman of the Senate Revenue Committee, whines in today Las Vegas Review-Journal that “What we need is a serious discussion about raising more revenue. And that’s not happening.”

The reason it’s not happening, of course, is that Leslie and her Democrat colleagues who control both the Assembly and the Senate refuse to put their tax hike plans on the table. The governor has submitted his balanced budget proposal which doesn’t raise taxes or fees. If Leslie & Company don’t like it, show us your alternative. Otherwise, stop yer bitchin’.
