The Broward Teacher's Union just issued a press release opposing the property tax-cut plan that Gov. Charlie Crist is backing for the Jan. 29 ballot. The union noted the tax cut could cost government services and took Crist to task for not discussing these: "The governor is not telling the whole story, which is sad."
True. But BTU isn't, either.
Just like its parent, the Florida Education Association, BTU misleads by saying the amendment would cut $12.4 billion. But it fails to note: 1) that's a five year number and 2) the five-year estimate was downgraded to $9.2 billion.
