"Here in George Bush's Texas we have a high sales tax (8.25% in Houston), High property taxes (up to 4% of market value in some neighborhoods) and high health insurance premiums with high deductibles and co-pays."

Wow...intercst must be smoking some good stuff.

There is no sales tax on food....and its 6% on a car.....and there are sales tax holidays to buy school stuff for all the kids..and of course, if you buy on line, you pay zero sales tax......if you buy from out of state.....

Real estate taxes? Heck, intercst is a renter......and brags about the cheap rents in Houston....what, $525 for a nice two bedroom in a nice complex with pools?

Try MD and MA for high taxes.. Even CA - if you buy now, rather than having bought 30-40 years ago and having your taxes based upon 1960s values......1/4 of what you neighbor pays....ho...talk about getting the shaft....one guy pays $10,000 in tax, the guy next door $2000 for same size house...in CA with prop 13....

"Yet many tea-baggers will tell you it's a model for the country."

I guess it must be good since intercst worked in TX for many years, and his main residence is still in TX...oh, right...it has NO INCOME TAX!....

And my healthcare is less than half of that in Lib Washington State.....

And I'll bet intercsts is lower than SP's health insurance costs....
