The Democratic-controlled county government that’s home to Atlanta is fighting Republican legislators determined to make it the only county in Georgia unable to raise its own taxes.
"In a move being watched by credit analysts, six Republican lawmakers from affluent areas sued, saying the increase violates a law passed last year that forbids Fulton County — and only Fulton County — from raising taxes.”
THIS IS THE TYPE OF RACIST, CLASSIST BULLSHIT WE’RE UP AGAINST AROUND HERE ON A REGULAR BASIS, FOLKS. God forbid all those wealthy fucks in North Fulton on their goddamn sprawling equestrian estates spend an extra 1% to help fund shit that poor people on the southside use more often, like libraries and Grady.
And this attitude is so goddamn blatant and accepted by everyone, that the fucking House Speaker Pro Tem (a Republican from North Fulton, obvs) will straight-up say shit like, “My goal is to end Fulton County,” on record, TO THE MEDIA.
