ABSTRACT
The article provides an author's opinion concerning the tax reductions and military spending increases that have reduced the funding for public services in the Indiana. The political leadership of Indiana's Legislature persists in giving "tax relief" to homeowners even though there is no tax relief in their state. However, he notes that they want to help low-income people and protect the lives and property of the wealthy to support government services.
