Democrat Insanity - Taxes, Taxes and More Taxes
- A brand new 1% Jerry Brown sales tax on the people.
Comrade Governor Jerry Brown of the People's Republic of California has a new proposal to impose a new 1 percent lumber sales tax.
AB 1492 would require retailers to impose a 1 percent tax on lumber sold in California. California timber firms support the tax because it relieves them of regulatory fees they must currently pay and shifts the tax to the general public.
The bill is no slam dunk because as a tax it requires a two-thirds vote of the Legislature. Republicans were opposed to the bill earlier this year reports the Sacramento Bee.
