Speaking in Winchester last month, Gov. Steve Beshear expressed support for the warmed-over “sales tax holiday” scheme that comes up every year at this time.
The question that never gets answered on this thing is: if taxes are too high, why don’t we just lower them across the board?
Indeed, Beshear perpetuates the myth that the state is short of money because taxes aren’t high enough at the end of the following video when he said “I think it probably didn’t pass this time because of the financial crunch that we were in and what it might take out of the revenue stream, but I think it is a good idea and I think it will be back.”
Here is the 2008 bill.
