Here in Texas we have no income tax and deducting sales tax from Federal returns is easy. Any reasonable tax preparation software knows how much sales tax to deduct based on your income and some data from the State Controllers office. I do not monitor my sales tax unless I buy something big like a new car or a boat or whatever.
What I would like to see is this: If the liberals/leftists cannot get a tax passed and if the increased revenue is such a wonderful idea, then let's make it a matching fund whereby the liberals/ leftists contribute 90% of the cost of the program and 10% comes from government. Wouldn't the Democratic Party find millions of enthusiastic supporters if the Democratic party itself funded 100% of student costs of college education? Or If it funded 100% of all global warming costs? Or if it funded 100% of all the social programs in every state? And not one dime came from the state, local or federal budget?
