We hate to give them any free press, but the promoters of the A&P Tax have launched a website, full of twisted facts and this video which claims we can grow our local economy by raising taxes:
The idea that growing taxes/government will grow business is absurd and flies in the face of economic history and logic. Federal taxes are going up. Sales taxes are at an all-time high in the U.S. And unemployment is over 10%. Is this really the time to be raising taxes on consumers?
We are all for growing Searcy–but we are not all in favor of growing government, especially during a recession. Time to go back to the drawing board.
