All we seem to hear from government is"we HAVE to spend here or we'll have to cut there". Where is the sales tax supposed to stop this time? 12%? 15%? Coupled with this VAT tax that looks like being forced onto us, we'll be paying 20 to 30 percent at the cash register. When government runs short they just dip deeper into taxpayers pockets. When we citizens run short, we have to tighten our belts. Maybe it's time for cutting something other than the buying power of Tennessee's citizens!
