VOG

I am amazed there is not more of a cry to arms over this.

Consistently, whenever sales tax increases are a topic, there are repeated posts as to how an increase in sales tax impacts the lower income more than the higher income classes.

Why not here?

Is the assumption Wilmington will not undertake an increase for fear lynching parties may be scouring the streets looking for Mayor Coiffure and the Council?

Or is the issue the lower income classes will not be going to the beach; so the only ones really bearing the brunt of the increase are permanent residents and vacationers from up North?
