Campaign Finance: total warfare, on all fronts (July 12, 2013)
Campaign Finance: be afraid, be very afraid (July 11, 2013)
Today, at the Missouri Ethics Commission:
C010081 07/12/2013 MO CHAMBER PAC Rex Sinquefield 244 Bent Walnut Westphalia MO 65085 retired 7/10/2013 $200,000.00
I can’t wait for the insipid television ads with characters wearing Leave It To Beaver pearls lecturing us all on the dangers of living in a state that isn’t last in the nation in tax liability.
Wouldn’t it be easier just to buy your own state? Oh, wait…

I am 66 and had a minor heart attack in May. I am now taking 6 pills a day. I asked my pharmacist to figure out how much tax I will pay if Rex gets his way. She calculates it to be about $140/year. I am probably reasonably average or even on the low side for my demographic (geezers). If I am average and if you grant that there are 700,000 people in the set then that is $98,000,000 new tax on seniors for their medicine. That will pay for Rex’s three year refund.
