    Sounds like it may actually be more than 300% ?

    State law automatically raises and lowers the tax depending on how much money is in the trust fund.

    I am not seeing where this was done by 'republicans' or even 'democrats' for that matter

    The one thing I am seeing attributed to party is Democrats criticized the Republican-controlled Legislature for refusing to approve expanded benefits that would have tapped into an additional $444 million in federal stimulus money for unemployment compensation.

    Republicans have been in charge here forever and they never addressed the issue. Now we are all stuck with what is basically the Republicans raising the tax rate.
