" taxation without representation." it' s the phrase that created our

our forefathers revolted against paying taxes to a government with which they had no vote. now 240 years later, it' s time to revolt against the mayor' s idea to raise cleveland' s municipal income tax from two percent to 2.5 percent. twenty-five percent more dollars out of the wages of people working in cleveland. according to the mayor' s office, about 87% of the tax money paid comes from suburbanities who don' t even get to vote on it. it doesn' t get any more un-american than that. the mayor makes some reasonable arguments about why the city needs the money. $18 million in lost property tax. more than $111 million lost from state tax cuts since 2010. $11 million to implement the d.o.j. decree to improve our police department. but the mayor has plenty of responsibility for these budget problems. the people who let the police department get out of control
