Make the Temporary Tax Hikes Permanent?

On Sunday, Las Vegas Sun reporter David Schwartz wrote: “As Democratic lawmakers and Republicans, including Gov. Brian Sandoval, tried to negotiate a deal on Sunday, one sticking point was this: Would the Legislature and governor agree to permanently put taxes passed in 2009 into law, or temporarily extend them for another two years?”

Here’s the governor’s position on any deal to make the tax hikes permanent, per a senior Sandoval adviser: “I can say with complete certainty, not a chance.”

Well, that takes care of that. Next?
