This would hurt Middle Class and poor people.

Keep in mind, the sales tax would probable continue to go up on an ongoing basis; taxpayers would lose control.

Cars, food, clothing and houses would go up. Even though there is NOT a sales tax on the sale of a home, there is sales tax on the building materials.

It would be a nightmare for people who earn their income and a break for those who don't (like what Reagan did in the 80's).

See Texas, it is quickly turning into a Rich/Poor state. Most of the jobs being created are low wage no benefits. Why doesn't Rick Perry tell you this in his speeches.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/08/03/gove...

"Should he ultimately choose to run for the White House, Perry will be spending a lot of his time on the stump repeating those lines. Dig beneath the talking points and you find a more troubling picture: rising unemployment, a glut of low-wage jobs without benefits, overcrowded homeless shelters and public schools facing billions in budget cuts. Surita and Johnson have been airbrushed from the miracle. But they still can be found on the housing waiting lists and shelter entrances."

Is this the direction LA should go in?

Another attempt at fishing for more victims to spew your liberal trash. Why do you care what we think? You are going to go against it anyway. Is it a lack of attention? Maybe if you would experiment with new masturbation techniques it would relieve your stress. Lord knows there isn't a decent man around that would put up with your bullshit.

What? Are you insane?

There are plenty of decent men who allow others to have their own opinion without an arrogant condecending put down.

You must be married to the arrogant condecending one so you are very familiar with masturbation. Good luck with that!

You are a really sad person. Instead of taking this opportunity to express a valid point, you try to BULLY people. So very sad.

It makes me think that you are being mistreated at home. I really can't understand someone like you. You seem to think by attacking me personally, you win a prize, what?

Do yourself a favor, get help!

What Bobby Jindal does not tell you is that most of the Repub states are "welfare states".

Who would want to live in a state of RICH/POOR?

Most want opportunities!

Why isn't he striving for "middle class/Rich"?

To road to that is with affordable education and healthcare, not giving exemptions to outside companies for low wage jobs w/out beneifts (like Texas).

Texas will soon be a Minority/Majority state; meaning the minorities will out number the the rest (rich white men). Will soon turn Democratic.

Again, poor people did not bring in illegal immigrants to lower their pay and get rid of their benefits; corporations did. Now corporations are asking the middle class to pay the bill.

Bobby Jindal CANNOT show you any proof that his plan can work, because there is NONE. His ideas have been around since Reagan and look where we are today; almost 1/2 the country at or below the poverty line.

I think Jindal thinks you will blindly follow him.

Are you?

Well KLFY had a story on this last night.(go to their website for full story)

Seems Repubs are asking the same question, why is Jindal doing this?

For the Repubs that will support him on a National stage? Is this action for his POTUS run in 2016?

Finding out that more and more people statewide(Repubs/Dems) are not in favor of the change.

Will they go after property taxes and homestead exemptions?

What is Jindal's end game?

Shouldn't he put his plan out there? Didn't he campaign on "transparency"?

I am all for dropping the state tax and raising the sales tax. Now, everyone will have to pay taxes.

The more sales taxes paid, the less product purchased! The less product purchased, the more unemployment. The more unemployment. The cost of welfare goes up. The crime rate goes up. More people are uninsured. Guess what, you made it legal for these people to own military style weapons (like to the ones the ex-cop in CA owned). While you are at work, they will be at your home robbing you or come late at night.

Are you in favor of that?

At the SOTU the Repubs were NOT in favor of the min. wage going up, they campaigned for it to go down last year.

I keep questioning the math skills of Repubs.

Why do you think the Repubs (1%) want to keep people poor? and stock pile military style weapons?

Look at the leaders of Syria, Egypt and Libya, all extremely rich, but the people very poor. See a pattern yet?

Your comment about everyone paying taxes, ALL pay sales tax now. The very poor can't afford to pay income tax.

So you are in favor of sticking it to the very poor again and letting the 1% get even richer? That is what will happen.
Whatever

I wish they would come to my house, and yes I have the same weapons. If the poor have a problem with it then they should get a job. I have never been without a job in my life. I guess it is because I choose to work and not sit around and blame other people for my problems. I choose to better myself. You must be a total liberal to believe any of the horse crap spewing from your own lips.

I would be happy if,food stamps and welfare was only given to the truly needy,not lazy people and illegals.
I would be happy if congress and senate would do there jobs and quit receiving a lifetime of benefits for serving but a few years,add that up and see how many trillions of dollars we are giving to these fat cats,that is not including the lucrative deals these people make while in office .
I would be happy if we quit sending money to foreign countries,especially muslim countries.
If we did these 3 simple things our deficit would be zero and our taxes would go down.
And for the troll who comments on every damn post,this wrong doing is on both sides of the isle.

Question:

1. How many and how much of welfare is being used by cheaters? To fix it, you have to identify it.

2. When did you contact your elected official and request that the POTUS/VPOTUS have six year terms (no re-election) and House serve for 3 years (no re-election) and Senate serve 6 years (no-re-election) with NO BENEFITS (healthcare nor retirement...)?

3. I used to feel the same about sending money to foreign countries, but the fact is we help them or our enemies help them and then take control of them; which is worse. There should be a limit.

How about stop sending troops into other people's battles (Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran). If tax rate would NOT have been cut (not too many good jobs came from that), then the Sr Rx program would have been paid for. Then Obamacare would be paid for. Keep in mind, even Dr. Carson agrees, to get healthcare costs under control, we must beable to get regular checkups and be held accountable for our own health at the end of the day; not once on Medicare.

The problem with raising the sales tax in LA and doing away with the income tax is that this will hurt poor people. Sink them even further.

Don't think they will stop will raising the sales tax rate; they are looking at the property tax rate and homestead exemptions. Sounds like the Middle Class would be next.

You are correct, both side of the isle help to create this mess, but the Repubs wants to make the Middle Class and poor pay for it (Middle Class and poor did not gain as much with tax cuts; so why pay more?)

@ Happy, calling someone a trol does not make you superior. Can't believe you thought that.
