I'm tired of the so called leaders of our state thinking they can increase taxes at their discretion. The revenue never goes where they say it going to.

I would vote for this as opposed to raising property taxes. At least everyone who makes these purchases will share the burden. No more property taxes!!!

This is totally absurd, taxes are already way to high and what a horrible time to even try to do this to so many businesses and people hurting from the even more horrible shutdown!

I see a headline today, 70% increase in opioid deaths. Gee who would have guessed lowering penalties on drugs would cause this?

Tax all the bad things. If you are going to have $5 tax on tobacco, spread it around.

I love my Eberhards dairy products but besides that, no I definitely don't go out of my way.

If your mommy rents out the shed in back of her house trailer she might no longer get Section 8. And where will you sleep if she does?

No

It's not a housing problem. Its a people problem. You can add 500 more places for people to live and 800 people will move here. When the bucket is full of water, quit adding more water.
