Re: How much more blood can they suck?

I was referring to government in general. The US Congress or the various state legislatures, all can find creative ways to tax, none can find creative ways to save.

WIth that in mind.......takes me back to the Regan era....When a luxury tax was added to many items by him and the federal congress. Proceeded to pretty much ruin the boat building industry among other things within the USA at the time. We have probably what, 1/4 of the boat builders that we have now?!?! I am sure the tax had something to do with it, along with a recession that occurred about then....... These types of taxes are not always the best option.
