Not to me. He said no new taxes. All of us know that we pay more than just income taxes, so this new tax is a break of that promise. You could argue it was income, but to keep income the same and then increase it elsewhere is just a semantical game on his part, if that was his intent.Originally posted by: MovingTarget
It was pretty clear to me during the campaign that he was referring to taxes based on income, not sales and excise taxes. Should we hold him accountable for increases in state and local taxes as well?
I personally don't give a sh*t about this one, though. Raises taxes on smokes up to $40/pack for all I care. Of course, you'll see less smokers so net actual revenues I'm not sure if they go up or down. I seriously cannot believe grown adults actually put those cancer sticks in their mouths, but fvck it.
