TAXES AND THE ECONOMY
Utah’s balanced budget law ensures that state government lives within its means. However, that doesn’t stop government from increasing “the size of the pie” by raising taxes. I will stand strongly in opposition to tax increases.
We cannot tax ourselves out of budget issues. I was very disappointed this year to see our conservative legislature vote again to raise taxes. I believe strongly in the economic power of lowering taxes. You know best what you need and what you want. Not government. Lowering taxes allows business owners to invest in their companies, pay their employees, and ultimately create new jobs. As your legislator I will support lower taxes thereby encouraging individual and business spending, saving, and investing – all necessary for a healthy economy.
