  •  New Hampshire is tax-averse, and $100M (1+ / 0-)

    in fines going to the state could make it that much longer before they need to impose a 'broad-based' tax like a state sales or income tax (have they still managed to do without either of those?).

    If the New Hampshire Attorney General can stick the NRCC with a fine of $100,000,000 I'll bet the people of New Hampshire would be happy to elect him Governor or Senator.

    We're all pretty crazy some way or other; some of us just hide it better. "Normal" is just a setting on the dryer.

    •  Yes. Neither of those exist. (0+ / 0-)

      New Hampshire does not have a state sales tax, or a state income tax. It never will, either.

      The first politician who even whispers a suggestion of either would be thrown out of office so hard and fast they could file a claim for whiplash.

      •  Not necessarily (0+ / 0-)

        IIRC, Jeane Shaheen won reelection after refusing to take the no-sales-tax pledge.  Not that she ever got around to solving the school funding problem that supposedly motivated her to not take it....
