How would you pay for a lower sales tax?

Posted 3/2/14

The Rhode Island Center for Freedom & Prosperity has been advocating for the elimination (or at the least a serious reduction) of the state sales tax for some time, but often without giving details of how the state would make up for the significant revenue shortfall that such a policy decision would create.

Last week, the center previewed a position paper that it will be issuing later this month that will give all the details, but it is clear the group will have no trouble finding more than enough cuts to state spending to make up for any shortfall.

Of the major items listed here that the center says it would cut in order to save the state up to $200 million per year, which would you think makes the most sense?
