In his Sunday column (Carl Wernicke: Our real problem remains insurance ), Carl Wernicke nails it. Insurance is a much bigger issue than property taxes.
The Insurance companies continue to make billions, but whine that they must raise premiums. Their executive are sitting back and laughing at our media and state government getting all worked up over taxes, because it diverts the spotlight away from them.
The same thing happens in the Tort-reform and medical malpractice debates. Doctors and lawyers go at each other. The Insurance companies still charge the huge malpractice premiums.
Good job, Carl!
