[quote]It's really an incredible thing. Every election cycle, Republicans pretend to be morally superior. The "honest ones", while painting democrats to be liars and thieves. I never got any forwarded emails back in the 90s that Bob Dole was the antichrist or lies about GWB misquoting scripture ...

re: We can cut our way out of our budget problems without raising taxes - mmcgrath
You're welcome. From that same link it also has a chart for state tax collection per capita. That list includes "Property Taxes, Sales and Gross Receipts Taxes, License Taxes, Income Taxes, and other state taxes not classified elsewhere" so it may be more reflective. In that list, the US average ...
