The first thing Thom Tillis did after winning the GOP Senate primary was to criticize Kay Hagan for raising the N.C. sales tax. He also claims credit for cutting N.C. taxes for 2014.
Except that, thanks to Tillis and the N.C. GOP, we are all now paying more sales tax on electricity, natural gas, tickets to PNC Arena and other live performances, all warranty agreements and service contracts and even my subscription to The News & Observer.
Sounds like Tillis raised our sales taxes despite what he claims to have done.
