Up this next week in the government operations committee is a bill being brought by Rep. Turner and a long list of prominent Democrat co sponsors. It is being run through the one committee where Democrats have the Majority. Where Republicans can not stop or amend a bill.
It has the pleasant little name "The tax cut and job creation bill". It sounds harmless enough right? Who could vote against something with a name like that?
It gets rid of a litany of onerous taxes Republicans have wanted gone for some time. It
(1) Repeals the sales tax on grocery food;
(2) Eliminates the local option sales tax and establishes a uniform, statewide sales tax of 5 percent;
(3) Eliminates the Hall income tax;
(4) Decreases the tax rate on interstate or international telecommunications services sold to businesses from "7.5 percent" to "five percent"
In its place is one simple little tax.
An income tax.
Get your horns ready.
