I plan on this being my last post for 2012 (unless I get inspired for another post between now and 11:59:59 PM tonight). I try to be a fairly positive person, but it really is hard to be these days…especially when you check out how much your taxes could potentially go up if we do go off the proverbial “fiscal cliff”.
Gridlock and continued bickering looks to continue to fill the air of the nation’s capital with a president that has no spending limit and a House Speaker and Senate Minority leader with no apparent spines. Things in the Gold Dome look a little less gridlock-ish with what appears to be the Lt. Governor regaining his power in the upper chamber of the Georgia General Assembly. Perhaps we could have a bill dropped in the next session of the General Assembly to take a play from Oklahoma’s book and begin to phase out the state income tax.
On the political party front, Georgia Republicans will be gathering in convention for the purpose of adopting rules and electing leadership for the next 2 years. That means, we’ll have a new state chairman. I’m sure we’ll hear enough about that as we get closer to February when the process formally begins.
So, what do you expect 2013 to hold for you? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
Happy New Year.
