My history maybe a little fuzzy but I remember 2 instances of the sales tax coming to Washington and Missouri. Does anyone remember the tokens, both aluminum and plastic? Like Nevada gambling houses, anything to take your mind off the money. Groceries and medical were exempt, but autos were horrible and later everything became sale-tax oriented. Same song and dance in Missouri, both predicated on the famous New Mexico sales tax. Beware OF Monsanto AND Koch brothers scheme with John Kitzhaber FOR THIS INSIDEOUS Tax. They furnish the money and he gives them...what? You think he has a plan to save you money on your taxes, wrong! As a spender he wants all your money and with his lies he might just get it.
