Those are just some of the taxes states are trying to add to make up for the huge budget shortfalls they have because of unemployment and because the Stimulus money for states is going to be cut off. Those aren't even ones they are planning to compensate for the expenses they'll have from the health care reform.
Which would you rather see, a straight up, in your face property or income tax hike you can see in black and white or all these little extra taxes that get added to everything but spread out over every purchase you make and every service you use?

Ah, yes! The Value Added Tax or VAT tax!! Whodathunk that the US would end up like a Canada or Europe so soon?!
Just wondering which politicians will stick their necks out and demand this--which as you know will PRIMARILY affect the low/no/fixed income population!
Isn't socialism just peachy?!
