Regarding the April 29 letter “The sales-tax fog”: Seriously? Rep. Paul Stam chided us for “forgetting” the July 2011 sales tax decrease.
Maybe he forgets that many of us can read and have read in this very paper that a House bill has been introduced that would allow cities and towns to levy their own quarter-cent sales tax in order to make up for the loss of business privilege tax collections that the legislature did away with last year.
But, yes, the current legislature will boast that it has lowered our taxes (with little regard for the consequences, apparently).
Quit playing games, sir.
