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.
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.
