Americans for Prosperity to Governor Perdue: No Sales Tax Hike State Legislature has Already Rejected Tax Increases

January 18, 2012 J

Raleigh, NC – Governor Beverly Perdue’s sales tax hike is a non-starter, according to Americans for Prosperity – North Carolina.

“The voters rejected tax increases in 2010 and the legislature rejected tax increases in 2011,” explains Dallas Woodhouse, Director of AFP-NC. “Does Governor Perdue really think this is the best way to start the 2012 legislative session?”

Governor Perdue made the same proposal last year but the state legislature voted it down.

“We don’t need tax increases. We need responsible government.” Woodhouse continues. “The North Carolina legislature has moved the state budget in the right direction. Raising taxes – especially taxes that fall hardest on the poor – would be a major step backwards.”

New Ad Highlights the Costs of Cronyism

Raleigh, NC – The White House gambled with $500,000 taxpayer dollars and 1,100 workers lost their jobs. That’s the message from Americans for Prosperity’s new ad, airing in six states including North Carolina, about the White House’s payoff to political allies at the now-bankrupt Solyndra company.

“The White House is reaping what it has sown,” explains Dallas Woodhouse, Director of Americans for Prosperity – North Carolina. “Political cronyism and bad economic policy have put over 1,000 Americans out of work and wasted half a billion in taxpayer dollars.”

AFP-NC Praises Rep. Renee Ellmers and McIntyre for Supporting REINS Act

December 08, 2011 J

Raleigh, NC – Americans for Prosperity (AFP) today praises Representative Renee Ellmers (R-NC-2) for joining 240 colleagues and passing the REINS Act:

“Rep. Ellmers has taken an important stand against regulatory abuse executive overreach. By passing the REINS Act, Ellmers and her colleagues are restoring constitutional balance and accountability to the federal regulatory policy,” said Phil Kerpen, Vice-President for Policy at Americans for Prosperity. “Hopefully North Carolina’s senators will follow suit and pass this bill when the U.S. Senate considers it.”

The House voted 241-184 last night to pass H.R. 10, the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny Act (REINS) Act. Republicans unanimously supported the bill, which requires Congress to vote on economically significant regulations before they can take effect.
