Ready for another tax scam?

It is almost time for Frankfort politicians to start talking up a back-to-school sales tax holiday just in time for free publicity in advance of the November elections.

Don't fall for it.

The Tax Foundation has a detailed discussion about this political game, but the bottom line is that if Frankfort really wants to give us a break, why don't they cut the sales tax from 6% to 5.9% for everything all year?

No takers on that suggestion, I'll bet. Wonder why?
