  1. A sales tax “holiday” is just a feel good moment. We live in a state with higher sales tax, but no income tax. If you don’t spend any money, you don’t pay any tax. Unlike the federal government, no one is taking your money and giving it away without your consent.
    In the end, there are is a large list of needy expenditures. If the state is feeling so generous, they should take the tax money they would collect and dish it out to the counties for road repair. Almost all are in dire need.
