    Wow. Well new york has been in trouble for years. Since before and especially while Hillary was there to now, it's spiraled. So they are now jacking up the taxes on everyone because they mistakenly thing that will help. I really don't know how these elected "leaders" are able to get elected without any economics knowledge, it amazes me. But it's just par for the course this will start happening nationally soon as well. It's too bad really.

    Your posting of a story about cell phone taxes was fine, as it is (presumably factual) news, even if it comes from the sensationalist New York Post. But you couldn't resist a separate post of a purely political nature. You really don't want to hear what I would have to say about this quote. That's why we try to keep our politics off WA.
