More bad news for Rex Sinquefield's effort to raise the taxes on almost everything you buy everyday: Sarah Steelman is actively campaigning against sales tax increases. From an interview earlier today on KCMO:
HOST GREG KNAPP: If you are Senator Sarah Steelman, and Herman Cain is president and comes in with his '9-9-9' tax plan, would you be for that?
SARAH STEELMAN: You know what, Greg, I support a flat tax versus a national sales tax. But I’ll give him credit, I mean I think he got the discussion going, I’m glad he put that out there. I worry about having a national sales tax on top of local and state sales tax ‘cause it's very regressive, and then you know, you may be creating more bureaucracy than less bureaucracy...
At the same time, Steelman says she has no idea what the national 'flat tax' rate should be, even though she wants credit for supporting the right-wing idea to help the very wealthy.
