Fairfax's "Hit & Run" Connolly Calls My 30% Tax Bill Increase a "Cut"

The WP reports:
As Northern Virginia governments cut property tax rates to stave off taxpayer rebellions against high assessments, Fairfax County board Chairman Gerald E. Connolly opened a competition yesterday with neighboring Prince William County over who is proposing the "Biggest Tax Rate Cut."

Even if Fairfax's rate changes from $1.13 to $1.03 per $100 of assessed value, my taxes are still going up. I calculate I will be paying 30% more this year.
