I do not usually like tax increases, but user taxes are the most fair of all taxes. If I do not wish to pay the tax, I do not need to participate in the behavior being taxed. In this case, local sales taxes would be increased to the point where it would cost an additional $30 to buy a $20K car or 75 cents for a $50 dinner. I don't think people will notice, nor do I think they will mind. St Paul's restaurants and stores should do better because of this.
I'm glad to see the measure pass, even with Juan Rincon being suspended the day before.
