Not getting the message

In local politics, Randolph County (NC) voters rejected a sales tax increase in the May 6 voting. A disgruntled County Manager Richard Wells said:

We only have two ways to raise money. This was one and property taxes are the other. The people have just voted themselves a property tax increase.

Mr. Wells, you might need to get your hearing checked. They didn't vote for a property tax increase, they voted NOT TO HAVE THEIR TAXES RAISED! You butthead.

You have to wonder what it takes to get through to these people--especially the unelected bureaucrats.
