This spring, conservatives tried our best to kill a $1,736,830,485 tax hike. After 5 attempts, the 6th motion received the 23 votes necessary to end a filibuster. The government grab-it rabbit is after you!
S. 940 is a bill that enables tax increase referendums for school construction in 14 counties in South Carolina. If passed, Anderson taxpayers will fork up $250 million.
It’s just a penny? Pennies ad up! This penny is $1,736,830,485. This money taken out of the pockets of consumers will prevent growth in our economy. It is a further intrusion on the freedom of the taxpayer to spend his/her own money as they sit fit. Additionally, sales tax hikes injure seniors and low income South Carolinians most.
