Sales Tax Hike Erodes Recovery

What are those politicians thinking?

Three years ago these people created mandatory health insurance with no cost containment as part of the package. Some of them apparently mistakenly think paying healthcare insurance is a universal privilege.

Today the sales tax was raised.

Well, I don’t drink alcohol – maybe I like the idea of an increased liquor tax. I don’t smoke either. Maybe they could hike the cigarette tax again.

I wonder if these people have ever spoken with an economist about how to revitalize a depressed economy.
