Democrats in Cook County are joining the Democratic Party of Illinois in wearing the “DEMOCRATS: The party of gun control” label with their latest antics in Cook County.
CBS Chicago this morning reports that Democrats in Cook County want to tax ammunition sales by 5 cents per round in order to help close a $268 million shortfall in that county’s Democrat-controlled profligate spending.
Apparently Democrat leadership in Cook County isn’t bright enough to understand the more you tax something, the less business you get as entrepreneurs move to more friendly business locales.
Perhaps that could be one reason Cook County is $268 million in the hole on their proposed spending?
Don’t confuse them with the facts.
After all, you can’t fix stupid.
