Asheville is a town full of smart aggressive people and a town with a lot more winners than losers. Anytime a city has an unemployment rate below five percent they are obviously doing something right. However, there are a few people around Asheville who seem to ignore simple economics. They assume that taxing the rich will bring in more money to our state. If that were true Gov. Perdue would still be in office. Under her we probably had the highest tax rate in the south along with the 49th highest unemployment rate in America.
