Greg Davids' has dramatically cut Local Government Aid and eliminated the Homestead Tax Credit. As Chair of the Tax Committee, his failed policies have resulted in huge increases in our property taxes. Local governments are struggling to provide necessary services like law enforcement, fire protection, and snow removal. I will work to repeal the "Greg Davids' Job Killing Property Tax Increase".
I support Governor Dayton's proposal to have Minnesota's highest income earners pay their fair share of taxes. Greg Davids and the Republican legislature have been touting "No New Taxes", yet the "Greg Davids Job Killing Property Tax Increase" raised property taxes $1.3 billion. Greg Davids proposed legislation to completely eliminate the corporate income tax. At the same time, they have cut vital services like programs for domestic violence. For example, Fillmore Family Resources was completely eliminated, and Bluff Country Family Resources, which serves Houston County had their budget cut in half. It is time for Corporations and Minnesotans with the highest incomes to pay their fair share.
