Financially strangled by our politicians
I'm not sure how many of you work in teh Private sector. No Raises for years, some of us have taken a pay cut, many have lost their jobs. Yet our politicians are oblivious to this , they know one thing... Maintain their Budgets.
Here's what our politicians have added to my life in the last few months.
Car Registrations: The Fee has gone up 28% for every car registration. For Suffolk County Residence, the MTA added an additional $50 to your car registration. That's right My car registration has literally doubled for each of my cars. Even my antique cars that see about 200 miles a year.
License renewal: My CDL license not only has gone up about $50 but now I have to add teh Price of a Physical to teh cost. That's right. To maintain a Commercial Drivers license, I need to get a physical and have a doctor fill out this 2 page form. That's in addition to the eye exam.
Car insurance. Car insurance is mandatory in New York. Our Governor just added a $20 Tax to Insurance. Some Ny City Police Union Tax.
Property Tax. My property tax has gone up $2800 this year. I guess the Civil Servants are still getting their Raises even though the rest of us are lucky just to keep a job. Heck Welfare got a raise this year.
Where do they think this money is coming from???
This State is amazing. I have to keep my heat at 53 degrees in the winter so I can afford the Oil Bill but a welfare recipient can keep it at 72. Phone bills are all kinds of wierd, A welfare recipient gets free phone service. Welfare recipients can get free computers for their kids. I can't afford computers for my kids. Why am I asked to hand money over to buy things for peopel that I can't afford myself??? I hate this.
