Cory Heidelberger has a post on South Dakota workers being third from the bottom in average pay. But you will not she him or any of his comments mention the tax increases we are paying in order to lift teacher pay from the bottom. Here is my comment he blocked:
So it is not just South Dakota Teachers that receive low pay. So Cory, how about legislation that increases taxes on tourists and give it to South Dakota workers and property tax breaks for the wealthy?
Tax and spend liberals from both parties like to promote coveting to justify their saving the poor from themselves. But in the case of increasing teacher pay, even the poor is paying more taxes. As Cory points out, South Dakotans pay over 2% higher rate for state and local taxes than Montana and Wyoming. Wyoming's after tax amount is 21% higher than South Dakotas. So why are the Democrats in favor of even more tax increases than the tax and spend liberals of the SDGOP? Do they really thing they can tax the poor out of poverty?
