    Why aren’t they doing any live streams so people who can’t make it to these obscure locations can have a real voice?

    Also, why were realtors exempt and piano teachers not?

    I expect that the tax town hall roadshow should be renamed "We're here to convince you we need a new sales tax on services". We will scare you by threatening to raise property taxes and sales tax on food.

    We wont address the fact that our materials showing decreasing sales taxes don't account for Amazon now collecting sales taxes and the impact of the supreme court case making other internet retailers now remit sales taxes.

    Tax reform really means tax increase. A huge surplus just isn’t enough.

    Gee. What a coincidence. No town hall in Utah's most populous SLC areas where 2/3rds of Utahn's reside. What are they afraid of?
