The leaders of the Our Schools Now and the media covering them need lessons in either math or integrity.

Raising sales and income tax rates by the proposed 0.45 percent rate is not a tax increase of 0.45 percent as it is being portrayed.

Increasing sales tax rates from 4.7 to 5.15 percent and income tax rates from 5.0 to 5.45 percent is an actual tax increase of over 9 percent.

We can debate the merits of the proposal, but at a minimum let's be honest about it.
