So we elected a Democrat to be the mayor of Omaha, and now we're surprised to hear him say that he wants to raise taxes?

The taxes are not that big of deal. The propery tax is only $24 per $100,000 of assesessed value. You can't find an extra $24-$36 a year?

The entertainment tax is pretty miniscule too.

Also if you want to do more to help Omaha out, SHOP IN OMAHA. Stop going to Sarpy county and Iowa to do any shopping. We continue to lose money in sales tax because of Omaha not having the stranglehold on shopping that we used to.

What Suttle isn't honest enough to admit is that not only are they going to raise the property tax rate, they're going to go through and re-assess houses. We're not only talking about a $24 increase on a $100,000 home. That $100,000 home will suddenly, mysteriously, become a $150,000 home.

That's what is so funny about the people on the KETV boards. They're like "you want to tax me a little more? FINE! I'll shop somewhere else!!" They don't stop to think that when all the sales tax income dries up, they'll just get another tax increase.

But the more you or others continue to not shop in Omaha, the more taxes will be a problem. Do you see the pattern here?
