Democrat Clark County Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani is quoted in today’s Las Vegas Sun as saying that the sales tax rate here of 8 percent “is already too high.”
We agree. So why not cut it? Why not refuse to re-impose Gov. Brian Sandoval’s sales tax hike that’s supposed to expire next June?
And I couldn’t help but notice that liberal Assemblywoman Sheila Leslie recently said in a debate that we should “phase out the modified business tax, which is a job killer. And we could lower the sales tax, eventually.”
Wouldn’t it be fun to see Democrats in the Legislature oppose the Sandoval tax hikes that are supported by Republicans? Now THAT would be bipartisanship.
