Americans for Prosperity offers to host debate, cover expenses for Berger-Tillis-Perdue Tax Debate

January 24, 2012 J

Raleigh, NC – In response to Senate President Pro Tempore Phil Berger’s challenge to Gov. Bev Perdue to a public debate over her plan to raise taxes by more than $750 million, Americans for Prosperity today offered to host the debate and pay for the event with private funds.

“This is an important issue that is very important to taxpayers and we agree that the issue needs full debate. Americans for Prosperity is willing to host the debate at a location that both sides agree to utilize. We will offer to shoulder the costs of the event as a public service to the citizens of North Carolina.”

Don’t Miss your Opportunity to Ask Dick Morris Your Questions about School Choice!

January 20, 2012 J

Join Americans for Prosperity Foundation, our sister organization, for a special town hall on Restoring American Exceptionalism. Don’t miss your chance to ask political commentator Dick Morris your questions.

For too long we’ve allowed our children, our hope for tomorrow, to be shuffled through a broken system. But if we want the best for our children and grandchildren – if we want them to achieve the things they dream – if we want to ensure that they will enjoy the same high quality of life that we have, we must act now.

Join me January 26th for a free town hall at 6:15 p.m. at the NASCAR Hall of Fame, 400 East Martin Luther King Blvd in Charlotte. Reserve your free tickets HERE!

We cannot allow this crisis to continue another day, unchallenged. Our children are depending on us. The system has failed them...Will we?

I hope to see you there.

Sincerely,

Dallas Woodhouse

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.”
