All across Democrat Delaware tax, fee, and fine hikes are in vogue, like gangbusters.
The government spending binge of the last 10 years, wherein the Democrat party has swamped Delaware with bloated patronage, far exceeded both the economic and income growth of the citizenry, easily by a multiple of 2 or even 3, in the case of Wilmington government.
Now that economic growth has ceased, the only real solution proffered from Delaware's monopolist political party is to bleed even more from the productive economy to continue servicing the unsustainable aggregate of government expansion with which the last 10 years has left us.
So, this means, in many cases, higher tax rates all around.
The question is : should we see economic prosperity return in the near future, despite the unbalanced load of government weighing more heavily on it than in Delaware's history, who thinks we will see all these tax increases rolled back as a lot more money begins rolling in from the higher tax rates when times are good?
Who thinks rates will stay high and these governments will simply embark on another round of bloated expansionism and unfettered excess?
