"Taxman" Governor Eric Holcomb AKA Mitch Daniels Lapdog!


It's a beautiful Monday today here in Indiana. All of us here have had a great start to the week. Hope all of you have as well. Now unfortunately we must switch gears and discuss something far less pleasant. We are talking about our political hack of a Governor Eric "Taxman" Holcomb. What can we say about this soulless eyed, butt chinned, vampiric parasite that has not already been said before? Unfortunately he is so "insane in the membrane" it's hard to stop discussing his shortcomings!

As we start the dog days of summer many of us are looking forward to relaxing and enjoying the warmth of the outdoors. Unfortunately this summer Hoosiers are going to start feeling the pinch of higher gas taxes and user fees courtesy of Eric Holcomb and the spineless jellyfish that are our republican state legislators!

Dan Carden of the Northwest Indiana Times has the story in his column "Indiana legislature, governor hike 45 different taxes, fees paid by Hoosiers", click here to read it. 

Mr. Carden writes:

Motorists almost certainly will notice when fuel prices across Indiana increase by 10 cents per gallon on July 1. 

Earlier this year, the Republican-controlled General Assembly and Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb enacted a fuel tax hike to fund road construction projects and restore the buying power lost to inflation since the current fuel tax rates were established more than a decade ago.
But that's far from the only new charge Hoosiers soon will pay.
Carden points out that "Altogether, Indiana lawmakers imposed or increased at least 45 different taxes and fees on everything from notary services to teacher background checks, according to a review by The Times of every law passed during the 2017 legislative session." 
And what does our so called fiscally responsible Governor think of the hikes in taxes and fees? He most certainly thinks they are a bad idea and is working to undo this right? WRONG!
Carden says: "Holcomb declined to characterize that (fees and tax hikes) as "a lot" of tax and fee hikes.
He instead was quick to insist, "I'm very comfortable with paying for what we need."
The question to ask who is this "we" that Holcomb speaks of? And what is it they need and why?
Carden quotes State Senator Brandt Hershman as saying:
"State Sen. Brandt Hershman, R-Buck Creek, chairman of the Senate Tax and Fiscal Policy Committee, said Indiana lawmakers adjust various taxes and fees every year, but strive to avoid a general tax increase on incomes or sales.
"Many of us feel that's a good policy, because it's a fee-for-service model and people can make a decision as to whether it's a good value for them or not, and whether they're getting bang for their buck," Hershman said."
What Hershman doesn't point out is that Hoosiers have to pay the taxes by law. And in many instances the fees are not something that we can avoid paying.
Now in marked contrast to Hershman, Holcomb and other so-called Hoosier Republicans who see no problem in gouging taxpayers. The leader of the Indiana House Democratic Caucus had a different view of the legislatures raising taxes.
"House Democratic Leader Scott Pelath, D-Michigan City, quipped that he's not sure Hoosier Republicans are the party of Ronald Reagan anymore, since the high number of tax and fee increases they enacted seemingly go against the tax-cutting policies championed by the 40th president.
"Sometimes I get a little flummoxed," Pelath said. "The raids on the private citizens' wallets come in a myriad of ways, in very small amounts, spread over a very wide area ... and they're very hard to keep up with."
This defies logic and reason. To think the day has arrived when Indiana Republicans are correctly scolded by the State House Democratic Leader for abandoning the traditional conservative republican principles of Reagan and lowering taxes and reducing government spending. We are not surprised after all Holcomb is simply doing as he is told by former "Godfather" Governor Mitch Daniels. Daniels is the little runt of a man who believes he deserves to rule over others. 
Here is a little ditty that describes accurately Holcomb and Daniels:


  1. NOT a surprise to those of us who self-selected out of the sewer of Marion County and State GOP politics. Having had to suffer through the many bloviations of this hypocritical tool at umpteen GOP meetings/rallies it because quickly evident to me Eric Holcomb was little more than a fatuous insider always out for self-enrichment.

    As for all the new fees and taxes.... THIS is how crony establishment Republicans from the governor's office to the state legislature to mayoral offices treat Hoosiers.
