And of course this does not speak to what many states will have to do as the stimulus runs down.
Those states will also be forced to take other action. For those with an income tax, there have been increases already in rates. They have deferred tightening belts as they had federal money to provide succor to/for everything from road work to buttressing pay for state, county employees , they will have to enact further raises, a plethora of regulatory and Fee payments.
Income tax is the last thing they want to raise of course as its the most publicized, but there is always more than one way to skin a cat.
California for instance 2 years ago ( which took effect last year) raised DMV fees by as much as 30% among other regulatory fees added in as well. They also raised the heck out of tobacco and alcohol sales taxs, which are btw, highly regressive.
Washington state which does not have a income tax, has a an income tax for the 'rich' only as a referendum on the ballot, of course when one reads the bill, it allows them to go much further than that 2 years from now, which as usual means it will inevitably hit folks in the middle class.
That was bullshit, the first-time "conservatives" tried to sell it, and it'll remain the same....for your "reheated"-version.
And Shaman let's out a quiff once again.
That's about all the good your posts are.
I'm sure congress will extend the Obama tax cuts to the middle class, unless the GOP blocks it, which they've threatened to do.
Interesting link, I noticed the ad for Grover Norquist. For those who are unfamiliar with Mr. Norquist I'll link his bio.
