Fair is fair

The Reno Gazette Journal reports that today legislative leaders from both chambers and both parties held a closed-door meeting with representatives of big business to discuss the need for business taxes to make up part of the nearly $3 billion shortfall.

According to the RGJ, the business lobbyists and executives were asked for their view about
how deeply retirement and health benefits for public employees should be cut.
Which is fine.

Public service workers are now waiting for our invitation to meet with legislative leaders to discuss how deeply tax abatements for mining and other big businesses who pay almost nothing in taxes should be cut.
