The tax rumble is over. The Sharks beat the hell out of the Jets. But everyone woke up this morning bruised and battered by the fight. It’s hard to feel great, even if you win, when the street is covered with blood and you realize the fight settled nothing.
This vote doesn't fix the overall tax mess that needs serious reform. This vote doesn't annihilate business. This vote doesn't permanently solve the ragged support of the state's public schools and universities.
On Monday, the Legislature convenes a month-long session. How about the Sharks and the Jets join forces and take on the "kicker," that crazy little law that kicks back money to taxpayers when the state economist guesses wrong on what tax revenues will be two years in the future and keeps the state from building reserves.
