The Reality: Utah's balanced budget law ensures that state government lives within its means. However, that doesn't stop government from increasing "the pie" by raising taxes, I will stand strongly in opposition to tax increases.
The Reality: We cannot tax ourselves out of the budget crunch we are in. Lowering taxes benefits everyone. It gives individuals the ability to take control of their lives and allows business owners to invest in their companies, pay their employees, and ultimately create new jobs. I will support lower taxes thereby encourageing spending, saving, and investing -- all necessary for a healthy economy.
