I hope he pushes for it every year. Then the voters can easily remember who wants to tax us more and more when election season comes.

“Chafee says he may resurrect his controversial sales tax plan next year.”
‘Cause what you should do when a state’s economy is down is kick it.

The voters are well aware who the party of taxes, cronies, union thuggery and welfare handouts is.
They continue to re-elect them.

I agree that the two-tier plan was dumb, but what’s so bad about ‘lowering and broadening’ the tax? I’m comfy with an all-around 5% sales tax with no exemptions. It would make RI a more attractive place for shopping than our neighbors, which spells jobs and development.

As a rule, if RI government is changing something, it is going to cost you more money.
