  •  But property taxes are local. (0+ / 0-)

    And, in any case, I'm not sure that's true.

    I know TONS of Repubs who moved to the burbs for the schools and their tax rates are much higher than us in the city.

    Maybe they figure property taxes is all they should pay?

      Owners care more about property taxes because they are more aware of property taxes.  When a tax is invisible, or included in the sticker, it is much easier not to think about it.  Property owners receive a bill.  It might not determine their location choice but having to actively pay it makes them more likely to think of it and wish they had that money.

      •  exactly - they've been sold all taxes bad (0+ / 0-)

        Unless the Dems start making the case for tax reform that ... trickles down ... the House is always going to be a problem.

        If you didn't like the news today, go out and make some of your own.
