They tried the "local option" sales tax here in CR & it, fortunately, bombed.

One selling point they used was visitors will now pay their fair share! OK, what about the people who live here? We pay that so-called "fair share" (commie term) every day of the year now.

All for some stupid river run project that everyone thought would bring more business/tourism to Cedar Rapids,IA. Yeah, not much of that here & if they want more, they can move the trash dump somewhere better than downwind from downtown...of course, they'd want to raise taxes for that.

GRRRR!!!
