Grady Gammage has the best Surprise

January 4, 2015

In the Arizona Republic Opinions page Jan 4 was printed “The Year Ahead” and “What will surprise Arizonans in 2015?” The first surprise on the list “Sweeping tax reform,” offered by Grady Gammage, is the best one and I would call it a home run. The idea of eliminating income taxes and simplifying our archaic property tax classification system and replacing the lost revenue with a more inclusive sales tax is an idea that both conservatives and libertarians (like me) can get behind. Taxing production is always a bad idea and property taxes are next in line. To the extent that taxes are necessary we should tax consumption, not production. The change Grady suggests should spark an economic boom. I agree that we should “give it a shot and see if it works.”
