Stevieslaw: Robin Hood Misses Cut

Shaila Dewan reported in The New York Times today that, “of the 10 or so Republican governors who have proposed tax increases, nearly all have called for increases in consumption taxes (sales tax), which hit the poor and middle class harder than the rich.” Some of those governors have also proposed cuts to their state income tax, in a move to ensure that the rich never run out of spending money.
Welle Feds, a spokesperson for, Nikki Haley, the Governor of South Carolina, noted that, “the shift from income tax to sales tax has worked well in Kansas and North Carolina, where the enormous tax shortfalls and budget deficits will certainly put an end to the State’s over-involvement in education, public health and the environment. Moreover, it might have been proven again and again that when the rich benefit, the poor benefit as well—through increased jobs, opportunities and table scraps.”
In Kansas today, Governor Sam Brownback appointed a commission to consider the revision of many of the stories, myths and legends force fed to children that portray the rich and powerful in a manner that is frankly, “unfair and un-American.” “For example,” he said, “The unjust depiction of the Sheriff of Nottingham in the Robin Hood legend clearly contributes to the lack of respect shown law enforcement officers by elements of our society.” “These stories reek of “Europeanism,” and it is high time they are revised.”
