Sales Tax is double taxation anyway. It should be unconstitutional and outlawed. The idiot policitians just want the money to give to people who CAN work but CHOOSE not to.

Sales tax revenue does not go to the unemployed. Unemployment insurance is funded by employers and employees. But sales tax does come disproportionately from lower income families who spend 75% of their income on items subject to sales tax while only 25% of a wealthier family's spending is on sales-taxable items. So a disturbing portion of the unemployment payments goes to pay sales tax rather than to put food on the table.
