Speaking of Dysfunctional Blue Cities: DC Mayor Proposes Raising the Sales and Payroll Tax

There’s an old saying about Washington DC: it’s half a libertarian’s dream. It charges high taxes for no public services.

Well now taxes are going up again in the nation’s capital and we just loved this headline from the Washington Post:

In what universe is raising the sales tax by a percentage point and more than doubling the payroll tax “targeted”? Maybe they mean the plan puts a target on the chest of every DC taxpayer.

DC already has a 10% meal tax and a 6% sales tax on everything else. Mayor Bowser wants to go to 7%. The top income tax rate is 10.75%.

If liberals take full control of government, at the top of their “to-do” list will be to make DC a state.
