To the editor:
Wikipedia describes a 19th century experiment in which a frog was supposedly cooked alive when water at room temperature was slowly heated to the boiling point. Evidently, politicians in Raleigh heard this story because a similar tactic is being used in their so-called tax reform package.
There was a 2015 rollout of new taxes on services or entertainment such as concerts. The sales tax base in 2016 expanded to include repair, maintenance and installation services on a variety of things. Is this any way to protect citizens and small businesses?
