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.”

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.”

State Senate Leaders Stand Up for Annexation Reforms

December 22, 2011 J

State Senate Leaders Take Strong Stand for Annexation Reforms Senate Tells Cities: Back Down or Else Raleigh, NC – North Carolina State Senate President Pro Tempore Phil Berger is defending the recent grassroots victory over forced municipal annexation. Senator Berger has informed the mayors of several cities and the North Carolina League of Municipalities that should the cities continue to fight this new law in court, the General Assembly – which holds the sole Constitutional Authority over municipal boundaries – will simply create permanent municipal lines to stop these cities from imposing forced annexation.

Breaking News: Taxes to Expire after Veto Override

June 15, 2011 J

Early this morning, a super majority of the North Carolina House kept a promise to taxpayers that a billion dollars in temporary taxes would expire at the end of this month. With all the cynicism in politics, it is refreshing to see politicians that signed AFP pledges against raising taxes keep that promise.

Voters should have renewed confidence in trusting some elected officials to keep their word. This afternoon the State Senate gave final approval to the North Carolina State Budget by overriding Governor Perdue's Budget Veto. We applaud this historic first-ever veto override vote.
