Taxpayer dollars funding higher taxes

This report from the Chattanooga-TimesFreePress is just another depressing example of government moving farther away the citizens. Rather than making their case directly to the local citizens for higher taxes and more money, the local bureaucrats and politicians find it much easier to go directly to their friendly bureaucrat in the Federal Government. Unlike local elected officials, the DC bureaucrats have dispensed with any pretense that they are answerable to the people.

I commented earlier on a similar report from Channel 2 Reporter Trent Seibert on a report from The Tennessee Center for Policy Research.
