Governor Says Proposed Tax Hike Is Not A Tax Hike
The Honorable Phil Governor wants to raise taxes:
No decent employer wants to tell their employees that they need to cut their salaries or cut their jobs, and I suspect Governor Bredesen is no different in this regard. However, both Bredesen and the Democrats in the General Assembly forget that the majority of Tennesseans do not work for the State, and that in asking the Legislature to lift the sales tax cap the Governor is asking for the citizens of Tennessee to pay for State employees to keep the same pay that they have while many Tennesseans in the private sector have seen their pay cut in order that their companies can afford to keep them.
