The senator didn't "blast" anything.
What the senator did was continue the perpetual whine that "business" needs to pay more, while either ignoring or hiding the FACT that "business" doesn't pay anything.
The customers of business pay all taxes/fees/whatever you want to call them.
It's a dodge that is oftem played, trying to demonize a class adn m ake them look evil. That way you can pick on them without looking bad yourself.

Right you are, George. Do not be fooled into thinking that businesses exist to pay taxes or to employ people. If Unions or politicians gouge them deep enough, they can simply decide to fold or move - a perfectly sound business decision which is proper for them and catastrophic for us.

Yup, why strive to own or work for a successful business that is making money when I can just get a social guber ment handout. lol

What Senator? Don't post a topic without realative facts.

Is this a NM Senator or a US Senator, either way I'll bet $1000.00 to the author of this thread that the Senator is a Democrat and is responsible for the monkey business they allowed Billy Richardson to carry on with for the last eight years.

You made my point.

The political status quo in New Mexico is well established through the Democratic party. Political history in N.M. and it's continuing ideals in the legislative branch has always supported bigger government. That fact makes me conclude that YOU won't take my bet.

only point that was made is that you are not paying attention and falling back on some stupid cliche about big gubment. And it is likely he is a democrat because we don't have a real Republican Party in New Mexico - what we have is run out of Texas and DC through PAC money.

Any approach that says that all taxes and fees are properly balanced, fair and can't be adjusted up is mindless and perpetuates the status quo. Simple solutions appeal to the simple-minded. There are people and industries that are not paying their fair share and there are low fees for some things that need to be revised upward to cover the costs to the state. We have a GRT on services in this state which make us uncompetitive, while we have taxes that are uncollected for interstate companies competing with homegrown firms. The status quo subsidizes all kinds of things we shouldn't be doing, leaving NM taxpayers to pay the difference.
