    Republicans have come up with a new group to go after, tax the cookies they sell.

    I see another tax cut comming up, if we can save a few million here we can lower the corperate tax.

    Why do you hate corporations? What makes partnerships, LLCs, sole proprietorships or any other form of business superior to corporations?

    What exactly is wrong with trading with others, employing others, and providing others with goods and services in order to make a living?

    and providing others with goods and services in order to make a living?
    Should workers be responsible for the success or failure of a company?

    More information is required. What is being said here? The GOP is proposing a tax on Girl Scout cookies? Can you provide a link to back this up?

    Doesn't say anything about republicans or democrats...just state law makers.


    ATLANTA - State lawmakers are considering a bill that would rewrite the state tax code and eliminate the exemption-status of some types of non-profit organizations. In simple terms, the proposed legislation would open up the possibility that Girl Scout cookies may come with a tax.

    Tenequa Wildy has two daughters who've been selling Girl Scout cookies for years. The girls have sold more than 1,000 boxes between them.

    Wildy said she was disappointed to hear the details of House Bill 385. The bill is a revenue generating measure that would eliminate the sales tax exemption of various services and non-profit organizations. If the measure is approved, Girl Scouts of America may have to impose a sales tax on cookies, their biggest fundraiser by far.
    Girl Scout Cookies May Soon be Taxed

    Of course. Scouting originated with early progressivism, so it is surely part of the vast commeenist conspiracy

    What little research I've done, it does look like the republicans brought this to the floor. I do believe the Girl Scout were unintended victims of the Bill...that is to say it wasn't directed at them but to other businesses that were exempt before.
    It hasn't been voted as of yet from what I've read...so stay tuned.
