One thing that we find interesting is that when it suits them, some people find gross receipts taxes to be a regressive thing.
But then, when they want more money for the government to spend, they say, “Let’s increase the gross receipts tax.”
Such was the case this week as the House approved a bill that would raise money to fund education.
Earlier, they had passed an education reform bill that called for some $400 million in new expenditures. This measure was their answer to that.
