Jon "Tea Party" Husted draws loud rebuff
In today's Metro section, Republican secretary of state candidate Jon Husted got slapped around by one of our own. Mr. Husted, aka "Creator of Ohio's CAT tax", has been running ads claiming to be a Tea Party candidate.
Anybody with a small business can tell you that CAT is just another way for Ohio to have it's hand in your pocket. According to the Ohio.gov website, The CAT is an annual privilege tax measured by gross receipts on business activities in this state. This tax applies to all types of businesses.
A "privilege tax?" Don't make me laugh Jon.. With CAT's May due date looming, go find me a small business owner in this economy who feels "priveleged" to hand over more hard earned money.
The Tea Party stands by three very simple principles. Fiscal Responsibility, Limited Government, and Free Markets. Husted is going to have a hell of a time trying to convince anybody he's the furry little kitten candidate.
But Ralph King said it best in today's paper. "The only relation Jon Husted would have with the Tea Party is if he would have been driving the British ship into the Boston Harbor."
