Wisconsin's high tax rate is driving away seniors, workers, job creators, and college graduates. This burden makes it more difficult for families to make ends meet. Rich pledged when he first ran for the Assembly that he would never vote for a tax increase. While other legislators voted for billions in new taxes in the past four years, Rich kept his word. He has made the same written pledge again this year, and will be a constant advocate for allowing Wisconsinites to keep more of the money they earn.
