Look at the taxes you pay. Look at how much money is taken out of your pay check. Now look at your bills…
We have a single woman who made the statement, “I could pay my bills if it wasn’t for such heavy taxes. I don’t have any luxuries like cable or eating out, and yet I still struggle. I have to pay for car insurance, utilities, and rent. And by the time I pay my bills, I barely have anything left over for grocery. I don’t want to go on welfare, but after taxes being taken out of my paycheck, I am just not making it. I work hard and I will always be willing to work hard. But I don’t get to use what I worked for. Is this what the government wants?”
My priorities are to help lift the heavy tax burdens off of our working families and small businesses. I want to see the private sector grow and create more jobs for North Carolina. I want to see citizens survive because of the money they make and not because they were forced to turn to the government. I want to see the wasteful spending in our state government stopped, and instead, protect your hard-earned money. I am fighting to cut taxes and see a balanced state budget that helps to create a strong and prosperous economy here in North Carolina. I want to see an economy of producers and not just consumers.
Vote for a better economy and a strong, secure tomorrow.
