THE NEVADA STATE SUPREME COURT, MISLEADING THE VOTERS IS OK ONLY WHEN GOVERNOR DOES IT?

May 12, 2016

Yesterday May 11, 2016, the Nevada State Supreme Court killed the RIP Commerce Tax repeal ballot initiative. State Controller and petition author Ron Knecht recently said they were on track to get the necessary signatures to put the Commerce Tax repeal petition on the ballot this November. Last year 80% of Nevada voters statewide rejected a similar tax.  Justice Nancy Saitta, in her statement, said petition signers “have been both deceived and misled.” Misled because the initiative authors failed to use language describing the costs to the state. But the costs are for moneys not spend yet. The Nevada State legislature passed the spending bills last session before they passed the tax bills to pay for them. The Nevada Supreme Court adopted the most extreme position possible in coming to their conclusion. 

corrupt liarThe court had no problem with the Governor and half the Republican Assemblymen and Senators deceiving and misleading the voters in order to pass the tax hike. The court had no problem wasting seven months before making their decision. The court had no problem with the misleading name “The Commerce Tax” when it’s really an “Income tax”. The tax supporters knew after poll testing that calling it the “Commerce Tax” would mislead and confuse voters. The tax supporters knew if they called it what it is, “the Nevada State Income Tax” voters were sure to reject it.

So if you want to stop the “Nevada Income Tax” or so called Commerce Tax, it’s time to get serious, get out and support Republicans who signed the pledge to repeal the tax. It’s time to walk, knock on doors, donate money and make calls. It’s time to take action and defeat the Establishment Republicans on June 14, 2016 and send them the message that you reject the “Nevada State Income Tax”.
