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