Noem Says Sales Tax Drop Due to Acts of God, Ignores Factors Within Her Control

Governor Kristi Noem is bracing us for a weak fiscal report for Fiscal Year 2019. Governor Noem says we should expect to see less state sales tax revenue coming in than expected for the budget year that ended June 30. She ascribes the dip partly to the agriculture community’s “suffering” with low commodity prices and inability to get into the fields this spring. She also blames the weather for keeping us all from shopping and traveling as much as usual.

Governor Noem does not mention the suffering caused to the agriculture community by the Trump tariffs shutting off our agriculture community’s full access to global markets.

Governor Noem does not mention the damage done to our conference and tourism industry by her regressive political agenda, which prioritizes guns and uteral snooping over protection of real human rights.

Governor Noem does not mention the drag low wages place on South Dakotans’ purchasing power.

Geez Kristi, God is definitely spiteful. But remember...

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever. (Psalms 23:6)
