What is the Fallacy?
From a letter to the editor: "The counties of Michigan clearly need the ability to raise additional sources of revenue, not only to meet the demands of growth but also to maintain existing levels of service. For without these sources those demands will not be met, and it will be impossible to maintain services even at present levels".
The statement presents two premises and a conclusion. Look at each of these to see if they are based in fact. Then look at the conclusion to see if it is based on these facts.
