Burdened enough

To the Editor:

I read the article in the Nov. 3 edition of the Northwest Herald regarding increasing our property taxes yet again to help the disabled. My taxes went up $605 last year. Now the county wants to increase them even more?

While I appreciate that the disabled have challenges, so do most others.

I cannot afford to have my taxes go up any more! I can’t afford to pay them now!

Why is it that the taxpayers should have to bear the burden for adding additional programs that don’t benefit the majority? Aren’t we burdened enough already?
