To paraphrase, commenter cheapseats asked Earl Ehrhart if he should be planning on buying his next boat in Alabama or another neighboring state if/when the GREAT plan passes, because Georgia sales taxes will go up 4%. Here’s Earl Ehrhart’s response:
Since we are not advocating any change in the state portion of the sales tax, then your tax will be the same in that year if this plan is successful.
Ok, Earl. Are you trying to be hyper-technical here or are you just flat out lying? If property taxes are eliminated in you and Glenn’s plan, sales taxes will be raised to make up the difference. But now you say you aren’t advocating any change in the state portion of the sales tax…but yesterday you said the language that you are polling mentions a 1% increase in the sales tax.
So what is it?
