Nevada's liberals acknowledge that tax increases have negative consequences.

This post by the NPRI states that
We've finally achieved bi-partisan consensus — tax increases hurt people.

In trying to condemn Governor Sandoval, the liberals are saying that ending a subsidy
is a tax increase. However, ending a subsidy isn't a tax increase — ending a subsidy is ending a subsidy.

That is wby Senate Majority Leader Steven Horsford, D-Las Vegas, said that Sandoval’s suggestion that the university raise tuition "is shifting the problem to others, rather than owning it and dealing with it straight on.”

Every tax, subsidy, and bailout is money taken from others. on average, working men and women have to work 6 months out of the year to pay all their taxes. Can we really afford more taxes? Every tax increase forces more people to live below the poverty level. We have more people living below the poverty level then ever before.

Has welfare really helped?
