Of course, that could be because Vilsack's speech didn't contain a peep about this either. Check out ITEP's policy brief on combined reporting to find out more. As with the cigarette tax, combined reporting is a windmill at which Vilsack has tilted previously-- better luck to him this time around.
Meanwhile, Vilsack continues to push all the wrong buttons in rationalizing his cig tax proposal:
[H]e said revenue from the hike would repay money owed to the Senior Living Trust, as well as capitalize an insurance pool that would help small businesses pay catastrophic health-care costs for their workers.We've said it before: cig taxes should not be about the money, but about curbing smoking.
