When the state of California raised the sales tax by another 1% on April 1, 2009 I was pretty pissed. What kind of government expects their residents to pay a whopping 10% tax on everything they buy? Pedro doesn’t want to pay $200 in taxes on his $2,000 60-inch LCD TV. Nancy shouldn’t have to pay $300 more on her $3,000 diamond encrusted bracelet. And I certainly don’t want to spend $5,200 in taxes on a handsome $52,000 BMW! That’s just ridiculous!
We the people of California deserve our luxury items just like every other parrot-brained consumer in America. Who’s to dictate what we can and can’t waste our hard earned money on? Certainly not some bureaucrat in Sacramento counting all his money under the table, no way!
