Jim Nielson: Utah tax reform plan is born of legislative hubris

This past week, I sent my state senator and representative the following message. Then I posted it online:

“This is one constituent that hopes you will oppose the latest version of tax reform. More stable for the government; less so for those that can barely afford food and can’t wait for a once a year rebate or EIC.

“To me the compensating factors proposed both for raising the food tax and for removing the constitutional income tax earmark for education are both cases of extreme Rube Goldberg contraptions.

“Both substance and optics in both instances are repugnant to my sensibilities, especially if y’all try to do it in a special session.
