Yes, governor Conan says we need more taxes. The title of this post is completely unfair, but someone was going to invent the term and I wanted to be first! The new estimated deficit is $11.2 billion so, after a bit of abstract topology, multi-dimensional calculus on complex tensor variables, fast fourier transforms and high performance numerical computing, we come up with the need for a tax hike of $4.4 billion. The hangup is that Conan, being a barbarian, wants to do this mostly through a 1.5% increase in sales tax, which means that real people will need to cough up real money. Snakes, what is your response?
UPDATE: Sniff. I am too late. Taxanator has already been used.
