Today is the special election in which Arizona voters are being asked to authorize a sales tax hike, which they are promised is “temporary” and necessary. Here is the truth in an excellent presentation by PAChyderm Coalition chairman, Don Goldwater. The group is a Reagan Republican organization.
The question he addresses is: Will Prop 100 Help or Hurt Arizona?
Passage of this sales tax is estimated to cost each Arizona household approximately $400 a year — unacceptable at any time — more so in this dire economy when so many Arizona families are suffering job loses and home foreclosures. Citizens are tightening their belts. Government needs to do likewise.
