State and Local Taxes at All Time Highs

According to the Census Bureau, “revenues from state and local individual income taxes, general sales and gross receipt taxes, motor fuel taxes, motor vehicle taxes and taxes on alcoholic beverages each hit all-time highs in the second quarter of this year.”

Yet, as I pointed out about this time last year, we have had more Republicans elected to office on the state and local levels in the last twenty years than at any time in recent memory and probably not since Reconstruction. Republicans even control both the House and Senate and governorship in several states.

I thought Republicans on the state and local levels were more “conservative” than those on the national level? I thought Republicans were “fiscal conservatives”? I thought Republicans were for lower taxes? Republicans are not only evil, they are more evil than the Democrats because while taxes go up and liberty goes down they say they are for low taxes and smaller government. As evil as Democrats are, they at least don’t think we are stupid enough to believe such things out of their mouths.
