Note to the bishops: The state will actually take in more money in taxes this year than last year(source pdf is here). Given that revenue has increased, perhaps the problem is that spending is rising much faster, and unless this facet of government is brought under control, their proposed tax increase will be just one in a series of many.

Raising taxes is not something to be done lightly.
