Jan Malik http://ripr.org en Straight talk on the RI sales tax http://ripr.org/post/straight-talk-ri-sales-tax <p>It is with a sublime sense of irony that some of us are watching the latest State House utterances about taxes, especially the chatter by state Rep. Jan Malik, D-Warren about eliminating the state sales tax.</p><p>``Our sales tax is killing small businesses, especially in border communities,’’ says Malik. Now, there is of course, no conflict with his interest. Our good Warren rep runs a liquor store (full disclosure: yours truly and his better 75 percent shop there) off Route 136 that kisses the Massachusetts border.</p> Wed, 13 Feb 2013 21:29:35 +0000 Scott MacKay 10307 at http://ripr.org
