Budget & Taxes

In previous legislative sessions, the Republican leadership under Governor Mike Pence, passed another sweeping set of tax cuts.

Every budget has two sides: income/revenue, and expenses/spending. I am greatly disturbed by the blatant hypocrisy in the Republican budget approach. While they make slashing cuts to the revenue side, we are told that we can’t consider other programs because we don’t have enough money. 

One thing becomes clear when considering our state’s financial picture: We do not have a coherent tax policy in this state that is consistent with proper funding of necessary government services.
