The back to school sales tax holiday is  dead duck.  Lucid Idiocy reported that Speaker Ralston mentioned not renewing it and now Galloway has Lt. Governor Cagle confirming that the program will not be in this year’s budget.

Can’t really get my head around this.  Why are we raising taxes on the public, yet continuing the corporate sales tax loop holes and special interest tax breaks?  The back to school sales tax holiday never really made sense, but neither does most of the targeted cuts the GOParanoid have favored. 

Will they repeal food tax exemption?  What about the energy savings tax holiday?  I got an idea.  Why not just make everyone pay their fair share?  Republicans say this all the time.  Problem is they only want you to pay your fair share.
