I recently read Barry Paschal’s Feb. 22 column regarding Georgia’s Transportation Local Option Sales Tax, “Transportation sales tax unlikely to win approval.”
While I agree transportation needs improvement, I am against the TSPLOST for two main reasons.
It is a regressive tax against the low income, fixed income, and other poor. The poor have no disposable income; every penny they get is spent on living. A 1-percent sales tax takes a loaf of bread a week out of the mouth of a poor child.
