Of course not #1: Il Duce opposes any tax for public schools

Even if the voters try to vote for one. Here are snippets from the Daily Star article.

Gov. Doug Ducey said Friday that he will oppose any effort to hike taxes to boost education funding, even one where voters would make the decision.

"I have said that we are not going to raise taxes," the governor said. "And I have been consistent."

His absolute stance comes as some business leaders are exploring whether there need to be more state dollars to improve public education.

Arizona consistently ranks at or near the bottom in per-pupil spending. But it takes a two-thirds vote of both the House and Senate — along with a gubernatorial signature — to hike taxes.

That leaves the option of a public vote.

Good luck with that one, business leaders. (How many of them voted for Il Duce, BTW?) The idioture will not fund public schools and the Il Duce won't sign off on any tax bill. And now Duce will buck the will of the people?

But he has a plan. I think it involves charter schools and more budget cuts. But you'll just have to trust him and wait for it. Just like the condemned prisoner with the blindfold on has to trust the warden and wait for it ... as the rifles are cocked ...
