The governor also proposed a 1-cent increase in the statewide meal and hotel tax, boosting it from 5 percent to 6 percent, which he said would raise $150 million

So in these economic times the Governor thinks that it’s wise to take another $150 Million out of the economy and give it to state government pensions and to service it’s debt.  Brilliant.  

Every dollar you take out of the economy and give to a Government hack – brings us one dollar further away from getting out of this mess.  

I’m sure struggling restaurant owners and hotel managers are thrilled at telling their customers they need to pay more.  Doesn’t this mean less money for tips?  Won’t this hurt the little guy?
