"Democrats try to force graduated income tax"

In Connecticut. This is especially significant for Tennesseans because Connecticut passed a State Income Tax in 1991. Since passing a State income tax they have risen from a low tax state to a high tax state. The income tax was first passed with two low rates, NOW, they want to ratchet up the rates by vilifying the "rich" (just as they vilify the poor when they raise tobacco taxes). Its not about the rich or smoking, its about growing the size of government.

And by the way, just like Tennessee, they had a huge protest in Connecticut against the state income tax. Unfortunately, it was a day AFTER passage.
