Maybe there should be a clinic or a rehab program for the easily shocked:
INDIANAPOLIS — Property tax bills for homeowners could jump by an average of nearly 24 percent statewide this year, according to a new estimate showing far bigger increases than had been previously predicted.
“This is shocking stuff,” Rep. Jeff Espich, R-Uniondale, said Tuesday. “This is the worst property tax news I've seen in 30-some years here.”
When I was in high school, we had an English teacher who made us compile huge notebooks each grading period. I hated them and always put off doing them until the last minute. I was then shocked to discover that finishing one would require an all-night session. But I was, you know, in high school. Shortly thereafter, I learned that there was a direct connection between things I did and didn't do and the consequences that resulted. No place for me in the General Assembly, I guess.
