According to the TV news Amazon shut down over 10K affiliates. The state also just lost that state income tax from affiliates as well. Take the new sales tax minus 10K income taxes, do a little math - probably not the millions they were after but it is a setback.
Wonder if the Governor, in his not-so-infinite wisdom, took into consideration that he probably just turned more than a few people destitute that relied on that income. Maybe those 10K affiliates will end up on the public payroll, nothing like a little welfare to gobble up a new sales tax, eh?
Not that we have to worry about such things during a high period of unemployment or anything.
One step forward, two steps back, do not pass GO, go directly to CHANCE.
