Thanks for the memo.

A weekend is a good start. We need to get on these elected representatives and tell them we don't want sales tax any other day of the year either.

No.
Sales tax is unfair as lower income people spend more of their income thus end up paying a more tax as a percentage of income. Do a search. I've posted a lot about this here. Not all states have sales tax.
