The state tax levy this year is $500,000 more than the state tax levy of two years ago. Next year's state taxes will be much heavier than last year's. An increase of over thirty per cent in state taxes is a proud record for the republican administration. The republican state tax levy is #500,000 more than the democratie, and yet the Ypsilantian says that "the democratie state tax levy was nearly as large as the republicans'." To the Ypsilantian, $500,000 of the people's money is nothing. That is the fault of its republican education. An increase of 30 per cent in state taxes may be nothing to the Ypsilantian, but to the man who finds it hard work to pay his taxes an increase of 30 per cent in the state tax means something.
