Arizona Republic reporter Dan Nowicki writes that Senators John McCain and Jon Kyl oppose the sales tax increase that the legislature referred to the May 18 election ballot.
I’m not surprised. Both McCain and Kyl have been pretty darn solid on not raising taxes.
What is more surprising, as I have blogged before, is that a Republican Governor is supporting a tax increase, particularly in this economic environment.
Predictably, the Yes on 100 crowd “couldn’t be more disappointed.”
Eh, what do you expect? Did you really think that two Senators with fairly consistent “A” ratings from National Taxpayer’s Union would support a tax increase?
