Brian Faler of Politico wrote an article detailing the Washington, D.C. city council’s expanded sales tax.
“Buying a home gym should be taxed at the same rate as going to one next door, and currently that’s not the case,” said Paul Blair, state affairs manager at Norquist’s Americans for Tax Reform. “The same is true for bottled water, carpet cleanings and car washes- buy the products yourself and you’re taxed; have someone else perform the service for you and you’re not.”
An article in Newsmax by Sandy Fitzgerald detailed increased support for Americans for Tax Reform president Grover Norquist’s idea of renaming the Washington Redskins to the Washington Reagans.
Earlier this month, anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist got in on the joke, telling Buzzfeed he thinks the plan is a “great idea” and that the team “can be the Ronald Reagans on winning years and the Nancy Reagans on losing years. Unless that gets us in more trouble elsewhere.”
An Indianapolis Star write up of Gov. Mike Pence’s Tax Competitiveness and Simplification Conference highlighted a quote from speaker Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform.
Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform: “People say they want taxes simple. But what they really want is lower taxes… the worst taxes are the ones people don’t know about.”
