DarthDoyle: Dirty Suits, Too!

Ted Kanavas provides us with another of Darth's gems:

Governor Doyle’s Democratic budget creates $1.78 billion dollars in tax and fee increases and revenue enhancements. The dry cleaning tax, imposed on gross receipts from all dry cleaning facilities, will increase from 1.8% to 2.8% in the 2007-2009 budget.

Trust me, YOU will pay this tax, not the drycleaners.

Take-It-NOW! example.

Owen also demonstrates that increasing the cost of an item generally reduces demand for that item--and sure enough, cigarette-tax revenues fell when the tax was increased.

What you have here is a spending problem. It's likely some sort of compulsive-disorder, as Savage has often said: Liberalism is a Mental Disease...
