To Top

Tax-Hike Floodgates are Now Open

Assemblyliberal Sheila Leslie (D-Reno) introduced a new tax hike on Friday, this one aimed primarily at low-income Nevadans. Leslie proposes hiking the tax on cigarettes by $1 a pack, on top of a recently enacted 60-cents per pack federal hike in the cigarette tax.

First the Nevada Legislature went after tourists for a tax hike because tourists don’t vote in Nevada. Now it’s going after smokers because smokers are an unpopular group of citizens. Which vulnerable demographic is gonna get screwed next? And which Republicans will end up supporting this tax hike?
