Fred Schwartz: Finally paying

January 4, 2014 

I am sure glad our tea party legislature did not raise the sales tax on yachts and private airplanes. That definitely would have hurt the economy. Lawmakers did good raising the sales tax on mobile home trailers. Raking in another $2,000-$3,000 will be good for the state. Those lower- and middle-class working class stiffs have been abusing the system too long. It is time they paid their fair share.
