Another thing the local repubs voted against

Before this started the communities along the rivers would have had to raise property taxes 400% to pay for this. Instead the Democrats had people vote for the 10th of a cent sales tax that paid for this. The republicans argued that the people in the county shouldn't have to pay for the project, completely ignoring the fact that the industries inside these levees are a huge part of the economy of the area. Ironically everyone's insurance would have skyrocketed in Madison, St. Clair, and Monroe County to pay for the liability of not fixing the levees. THE REPUBLICANS literally would have raised taxes, raised costs on all of the people in those areas and ran businesses out of the area. That's THEIR economic policy for the area.
