Letter: GOP’s sales tax lowers electric savings even more

3 Comments | Leave a Comment

The reduction of electric rates by 16 percent seemed a real coup for Elizabeth City’s residential customers. It “seemed” to be. But when looked at critically, that much touted 16 percent savings shrinks drastically.

Amen! We ought to vote out each of these creeps the next chance we get!

Citizens should demand...

a table of increased sales and use taxes to show the before and after of Republican tax increases since they turned us into a republican theme park in 2013. These taxes have been imposed piece-meal and largely unnoted by media.

We hear bits and pieces as increases have raised the ire of small groups, such as the first ever 4.5%? entertainment tax on county fairs, and this increased sales tax on electricity, but did anyone notice that sales tax for food increased from 2% to 8% in the same period?

Republicans promised that they would collect more revenue through sales and use taxes than through income tax alone, and would eliminate income tax as a result. So far i'm still paying income tax and now I'm paying far more in sales and use taxes. Perhaps the "Carolina Comeback" should rightly be called the "The Republicans on my back Comeback," or even more precisely, the "Republicans' hand in my pocket Comeback."

The republican plan to foist a $2 billion dollar bond on us is more of the same sleight of hand - you and I will pay tax-free interest on 20-year bonds that build buildings with only a ten-year life-span. So far republicans haven't released the minimum value of these bonds, but they are likely to be in $50k to $100k range and that pretty much leaves average folks out of the market. So once again, Republicans pay the rich to get richer, but with our money. That's why they are pictured, heads-back, mouths-agape in uproarious laughter anytime this appears in the news.

So, where's the table, fiscally responsible republicans? Or are you the card-cheatin' cowards you really appear to be?
