    we are one tax happy state, except that we do not have an income tax. However everything else is taxed to the moon.

    How about a sales tax rate sneaking up on 10%

    Tennessee is one of the lowest taxed states in the country. People have nothing to complain about.

    Personally, I think we'd be better off with a much lower sales tax and a minimal income tax.

    It'll never fly. Ironically, most of the people who get all in arms whenever the word "income tax" is uttered are the ones it would help the most. Sales tax hits the hardest at lower and middle class families who spend every dollar they make.

    Exactly. People have gotten brain washed into believing that new taxes are inherently bad and have no clue how the system actually works.
