Why is everyone, including your writers, calling the proposed sales tax increase a 1-cent tax? It’s one percent. That’s two cents on a $2 purchase, 20 cents on a $20 purchase, $2 on a $200 purchase, and $20 on a $2,000 purchase. It’s an 18-percent increase in the sales tax we already pay.
Start reporting the truth about the new tax. Vote no on the “1-cent” tax.
