If they are going to cry about it why do they offer it? There should be no sales tax anywhere. They steal from us every which way without the sales tax. Now Quincey is talking about billing insurance companies for "car crashes, rescue calls, false alarms." How stupid is that? It will drive up insurance premiums and just be another back door tax.

if it came down to just a 3% tax, I think we would be more competitive. At 6.25%, it's cheaper to drive to NH.
