Minnesota Teaches GOP About Tax Hikes

I guess I shouldn't be surprised about this sort of thing, but I am.

This just arrived regarding our pending trip to the Republican National Convention:


Dear RNC Guest,

The Minnesota Department of Revenue recently issued a tax change that
will affect your hotel stay. Beginning July 1, 2008, the Minneapolis
metropolitan area counties of Anoka, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, and
Washington imposed a 0.25% Transit Sales & Use Tax, which will be used
to fund the area's transit system including light rail, commuter rail
and bus rapid transit.

Due to this change, the tax rate listed on your hotel confirmation may
not be accurate. Please refer to your hotel folio upon your arrival or
departure for the accurate tax rate that will be applied to your stay.

Please refer to your hotel folio for tax rate information, which may
vary from your hotel confirmation.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Kind regards,

2008 Republican National Convention Travel Desk

How did Minnesota politicos think this would go over? Seriously, how blinded by greed can a government be?
