DEMOCRAT LEGISLATORS SIDE WITH POLITICIANS ON TAX LIMITATION

Our recent statewide issues poll reveals 62% of voters agree with a Constitutional Amendment limiting the income tax to no more than 5.5%.

But anti-reform Democrat legislators refuse any limit on the power of politicians to raise taxes. And the blindly left wing Budget and Tax Center predictably says handcuffing the politicians will starve North Carolina. Never mind that the current income tax rate is lower than the 5.5% cap (5.499%) and is scheduled to go even lower (5.25%) in 2019.

And never mind that lower taxes are proven to help the economy – states without an income tax have outperformed high tax sates in economic growth for 40 years.

That’s the choice: more jobs, more stability, and higher incomes for families, OR more for politicians to spend.

Let’s hope voters get the chance to make that choice in November.
