I support a constitutional amendment raising taxes on individual incomes greater than $200,000. Any proposed graduated income tax amendment should include personal exemptions indexed to one year of wages at the prevailing state minimum wage. Those making minimum wage (or less) would be exempt from income taxes.
I support eliminating waste, duplication of efforts and unneeded bureaucracy in state government. Our state should have a much lower institutional hierarchy. The layers of bureaucracy need to be reduced.
I also support expanding the sales tax to include non-essential discretionary services (luxuries).
I support restoring the state gaming taxes on casinos to 70% and raising the tax on cigarettes by $1. The revenue from this stream should be completely dedicated to education (K-12) without any chance of being "swept".
