Debating Tax Reform

Artist - Pat Bagley

In other news, under a new law passed in July, the state of Louisiana now prohibits the use of cash for all second-hand sales such as the buying and selling of used goods. The law also requires obtaining personal information of customers.

Needless to say, Louisiana is a deeply-red, Republican-controlled state, and they've just implemented a law that represents a massive intrusion of government into private business. And as a liberal, I wouldn't support the banning of cash in second-hand sales.

The mind boggles.
