State 29: I'm Shocked SHOCKED To Find That Estimates Were Too Low For The New Polk County Jail
Excerpted from this post at State 29
... Right. Dennis Anderson did not intentionally mislead or misunderestimate the true cost of the new jail. Yeah, we believe you. No way would that happen in Polk County! The news story then went on to talk about how a property tax increase for the jail might affect Project Density, the multi-county metro area tax increase that will go down to major defeat later in 2007. You should have heard them talk. Polk County residents will probably see their property taxes go up another $25 a year on a $100,000 a year house just for the jail budget screwup, but wave the magic Project Density wand and lo and behold your property taxes will go down once they jack the sales tax up to 13% of whatever the hell it will be when all the inbred Democrats get done.
