Small newspaper in my area

Small newspaper in my area today reported that local politicians passed the budget... supposedly the budget was increased, while at the same time it was a fraction of a percent lower than last year and they raised taxes 3 cents. Then proceeded to report 0.#### per 100 as the property tax. Obviously, to those who see right through it all, they stated it in this way so that the average peasant taxpayer does not realize they were hit with a 10% increase in their property tax... while the politicians increase the budget & decreased it at the same time.

How did they take your 12 bucks a week? They probably wouldn't even know if you asked them directly.
