It’s still a Margin Tax

How naive does the governor believe his constituents are? The Margin Tax Initiative was overwhelmingly rejected last November. A tax by another name, “business license tax,” is still the same.

Gov. Sandoval states that this will help education, yet Common Core is a travesty, and this will just be throwing money at a reckless program.

The real elephant in the room that no one is speaking of is that there is no apportion for education; all the money will go into the General Fund, and it will not be applied to education anyway.

Look what happened when President Johnson moved the money from Social Security into the General Fund. That was the end of the Social Security program.
