I-695: Tax raise (for some)greenspun.com : LUSENET : I-695 Thirty Dollar License Tab Initiative : One Thread
I wonder why no one has mentioned the fact that 695 will actually *raise* car taxes for those who drive cars that are worth $1400 and less? You couldn't find a better example of reverse Robin-Hoodism if you tried.

Yeah... since both of my cars are 86's, I stand to pay about 70 cents more when this passes.

I'm in the same boat as Westin. My tabs will go up by $4 or so. But my mom will pay 1/10th of what she was paying on her minivan. And her neighbor will pay 1/40th of what she pays now for her Expedition. Talk about a tax break for the common man (or woman).

So your mom and her neighbor are the filthy rich who are driving these over priced, polluting, gas guzzling, using more than their fair share of the planets resource vehicles. And I thought it was young, middle aged white conservative males.
