    Article about Manitowoc city workers being laid off

    Your last sentence is correct. However, the rest of you thesis is not very well thought out. A sales tax is a regressive tax which most conservatives are for. It is not based on the ability to pay. It also prevents the poor from buying more product which someone needs to produce which could lead to more profits and more labor income which in turn would lead to more income tax owed to the Government. This is only a partial part of the whole story.
