The governor’s new tax scam seems aimed at dodging fairness. So, why not be fair and tax real property only? Owners pay more because they own more, renters pay their share indirectly and state sales tax could be reduced, thereby putting more money in circulation.
The flip side would be large property-holders wouldn’t have extra money to fund Bobby Jindal’s federal aspirations.
However, the meek shall inherit the Earth, or whatever is left after a meteorite hits us.
