The stakeholder two-step

In a post in this blog on April 15th, I commented on the Nevada Vision Stakeholder Group's report. In this commentary by Geoffrey Lawrence of NPRI, the article states that,
"The vast majority of the members of the Nevada Vision Stakeholder Group are government officials, union members and others who profit from government largesse," said Geoffrey Lawrence, the NPRI analyst. "It's unfortunate, though not surprising, that this group of tax consumers and its facilitators have determined that the road to a better Nevada is paved with yet more government growth, financed by hard-working, taxpaying Silver State citizens."

"It's abundantly clear that the sole reason behind the creation of the Nevada Vision Stakeholder Group was to push for more government," Lawrence said. "It exists to provide big-government legislators, led by Sen. Steven Horsford, political cover when they call for massive tax increases during the 2011 Nevada Legislative Session.

As I said in my April 15th post, this was just an excuse to raise taxes. It is time to say that we have had enough. Join the IAP $100,000 Challenge. Fight back now.
