The author criticizes Barbara Buckley, Democratic member of the Nevada Assembly, for her tax-increase proposal. He scrutinizes Buckley's plans as laid out in a series of town hall meetings. The author argues that the purpose of Buckley telling Nevadans how bad Nevada is compared with the rest of the nation is to lay the track for a massive tax increase in the 2009 legislative session. He refutes Buckley's justification that her plans is an overhaul of the government and a restructuring of the tax system.
