The Post-Gazette sums up additional opposition to Gov. Rendell’s proposed expansion of the sales tax – this time from the computer services industry.
The article also notes how Gov. Rendell touts “silly” exemptions, such as for helicopters. But it was a grand total of six months ago he signed the helicopter exemption, and his spokesman praised the exemption as it would create jobs.
Indeed, while lower taxes do foster job creation, the Rendell scheme has always been to lower taxes for select special interests (while at the same bashing “special interests”).
