Del. Howard sponsors bill to raise sales tax by 40%
That’s right folks, Del. Carolyn J. B. Howard (D-24) apparently is not satisfied with Gov. O’Malley’s proposed tax increases. She has introduced HB 53 to raise the sales tax rate to 7%, a 40% increase. As with Gov. O’Malley’s sales tax proposal, this increase will have the greatest negative effect on poor and working people who can least afford it. I’m ashamed to be “represented” by her.
