It’s time for us to consider an income tax instead of raising the sales tax. The sales tax affects everyone, including those with little or no income. They still must shop even if just for necessities.

People with little or no income would pay little or no income tax. Those with income would pay a percent in income tax. Wouldn’t that be fairer?
