Irrelevant Comparisons

The lefties like taxes--and they make a case which is irrelevant. Maybe they think you're stupid.

A sales tax actually has very little to do with where a business chooses to operate. Case in point: Miller Brewing recently moved most of it's [sic] management operations to Chicago, a city with a 10.25% sales tax

So what?

Nobody is making the case that businesses such as Miller Brewing will not locate in high-sales-tax areas.

However, a high sales tax will have a negative impact on retail sales establishments--like restaurants and furniture/appliance stores.

And then come the inevitable cries of racism as businesses relocate to the surrounding counties. ACORN will press for a new version of the CRA which will require 'fairness' in the location of businesses.
