Falconer presents compelling analysis of the long-term effects of the Save Our Homes Amendment on the Florida economy. The article describes Save Our Homes as a tax shift rather than a tax limit. Save Our Homes shifts the tax burden from voters who would be motivated to limit government spending to those that don’t have a vote like second home-owners.
The article does a fine job of describing the effects of the Save Our Homes laws on those that it negatively effects, (1) second homeowners, (2) apartment renters and (3) small business owners. It is time for political leadership with the intestinal fortitude to do the right thing to step forward and fix this mess.
