Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit
Looking to exploit the momentum created by the recent school strike, a small coalition of liberal organizations and labor unions have launched a ballot initiative that would permanently damage Arizona’s economy.
The proposed “Invest in Education” proposition would impose a new top individual income tax bracket of 9 percent, a near doubling of the current top rate of 4.54 percent. This radical increase would give Arizona the 5th highest income tax rate in the nation, trailing only California, Hawaii, Oregon and Minnesota.
Joining the ranks of the high-income tax states would be a decision that Arizona would quickly come to regret. The evidence is overwhelming—states with a low or no income tax have consistently outperformed high tax states in job creation and economic growth.
It is why for decades Americans have been voting with their feet and moving to states like Arizona with a favorable tax climate. On net, nearly 1,000 people a day are migrating to low income tax states, while the same number is exiting high tax states. If this initiative passes, we should expect entrepreneurs, high earners and employers to take their jobs and investments elsewhere.
This is the typical behavior and mindset of the Socialists in America, lets TAX Success, and unfortunately the School System from K thru College teaches it and we pay Taxes to Fund it. We need to remove the Federal Government from Education as Trump had Promised to do and insist that anyone running for Federal or State Office Support Removing them or don't Vote for them. I'm not talking about Lip Service from Politicians as usual, I'm talking about each of us making a difference so those running know we're serious. God Bless You All; Clair VAN Steenwyk
Tax and spend a mantra of the left and creeping into the minds of non conservatives that Republicans elect.
I was at a recent Ward Town Hall and a question posed to her from an attendee, paraphrasing of course, "what federal agencies would you vote to eliminate?' and without a pause Ward responded "education and epa".
The truth of the matter is this; There are only 4 Depts. that are Authorized by Our Constitutional Form of Government, Treasury, Defense, AG, State, all others duties belong exclusively to the States, however most States also like the system in place as that way they also have a scape goat, so we the voters must exercise our Authority and remove all in office who violate their Oaths just by funding all others in the Budget.
