This is scary. Jimmy Naifeh said he thinks there should be a cap on the sales tax at 9.75%.
Yep, I agree.
The problem is, he is trying to tag it on to the constitutional amendment to ban the state income tax.
Some people think he is not sincere in his desire to actually pass the idea but is more trying to kill the current moving resolution (they call it a poison pill amendment).
I am going to give Jimmy Naifeh the benefit of the doubt. In fact, I am ready to go even farther. I am ready to work with him to pass it as its own stand alone amendment to our state constitution this year. I will happily sponsor it in the senate, put it forward, vote for it and actively encourage others to follow suit.
If Jimmy is truly serious about it I will work with him to make it happen this year. I could probably have it drafted and ready for introduction next week. Will Jimmy do the same for the idea as its own resolution or is it all a show to keep an income tax alive?
