Gov. Jim Gibbons signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge promising to oppose and veto any and all efforts to increase taxes right before proposing the third largest tax increase in the state’s history and then refusing to veto it.
Now, apparently following the governor’s lead, GOP Assemblyman John Carpenter, who also signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, has signed on as the ONLY Republican co-sponsor of a massive new tax hike (AB 277) on alcohol.
What in the hell is the matter with these Republicans? And they wonder why they’re in the minority?
