DE JFC passes motion 9-3 rejects Gov plan to cut Senior tax credit & cites JFC support for referendums in
Governor Markell’s call to cut senior citizen school tax discounts has caused a major ripple throughout the senior citizen community who are calling for a big NO turnout re: school tax referendums. Senior citizens I talked to are very skeptical of those legislators urging Governor Markell to drop his plans. They feel once the referendum is passed Markell loyalist in the House and Senate will come through for him with a YES vote on his plans to cut tax credits. As for as the GOP ? What a joke, they have no power as the minority!
Again, I feel Markell’s call to cut school tax credits to seniors is nothing more than paybacks to Red Clay and Christina school districts who railroaded his Priority School agenda. Markell tactics is like the Iraqis burn and trash retreat out of Kuwait.
