Tom Katus, who lost his District 32 seat to Adelstein, questioned him on the regressive nature of the sales tax and suggested alternatives including a corporate business tax.
Adelstein said South Dakotans do not want a state income tax and that tax breaks for corporations are necessary to lure jobs to South Dakota.
“I agree that it’s regressive, but it’s temporary,” Adelstein said. “I think it’s worth that moment of regression.”
And they say there's no difference between Democrats and Republicans.
Maybe someday West River voters will get engaged enough in the election process to figure out they are sending the wrong people to Pierre.
Republicans LOVE those corporate tax breaks. Look what's been accomplished in Washington State. The result: their aid to education is now way at the bottom (but still above South Dakota, of course).
Who makes up the difference -- YOU AND ME. Go ahead, vote Republican, they really look after your "freedom" don't they?
