Sales Tax Holiday = CYA

27 Jan , 2016  

So now Republicans are now proposing a one week sales tax holiday?

What a dumb idea.

A one week sugar high for consumers?

If lawmakers really want to provide consumers relief when buying retail goods in Wisconsin, repeal the damn minimum markup.

Now, there is no one lobbying against the sales tax holiday and a lot of orgs like the price fixing MM, but still.

Minimum markup repeal would bring long-lasting, free market relief that won’t reduce state tax revenues.

This sales tax holiday is dishonest pandering. We should be better than that.

And I believe for many, this proposal is a CYA move over their failure to repeal the dumb minimum markup law.

But I bet this fast-tracked proposal gets a public hearing…

Unlike the Vukmir/Ott Minimum Markup Bills that have languished in committees since October.

This is shameful.
