Republican Phil Berger on Beverly Perdue's $1.5 B Tax Increase
NC Senator Phil Berger (R-Rockingham) is not happy about Governor Beverly Perdue's Tax Increasing Budget. In fact, he stated on Wednesday:
“Governor Perdue’s call for a job-destroying $1.5 billion tax increase is irresponsible and could not come at a worse time.As North Carolina faces the most dire economic recession in decades including double digit unemployment rates, Governor Perdue refuses to abandon the tax and spend policies that have brought us to this point.The Democratic addiction to more spending and higher taxes is a surefire strategy for more job losses and delayed recovery.History shows increasing taxes during a recession has never produced an economic recovery.Republicans proposed a reasonable alternative of freezing spending at existing levels, a policy that will not require debilitating cuts to education or job-destroying tax increases.Politicians can only be effective if the people that elected them trust them to keep their word – Governor Perdue should think twice before breaking her campaign promise not to raise taxes.”
