I agree. She wants to make a claim but does not back it up.

They fail to realize how good they have it.

The sausage take on the tax issue with an example shows a viewpoint of reservations being equivalent to a foreign country. To that, the US Supreme Court has ruled is bunk and the taxes can legally be collected from non-Indians and tribal members if not of the tribe they are doing business with.

Time for NY to collect overdue taxes!

He spoke out against Pataki for not collecting the taxes from the tribes but now he looks the other way. Lets hope he is putting a solid plan together or he will not last long in that position.
