We are losing jobs every day to China and to many countries whose tax codes are less burdensome than our own. Upward mobility is necessary in order to sustain a healthy American life and economy. People are saddled with debt and the system is stacked against the little gal/guy who wants to launch a small business and get ahead. We need to reform the tax code and pass a flat or fair tax and bring trillions of dollars back from overseas, which would immediately provide millions of jobs and an economic boom like few other times in US history. The District 8 technology corridor will experience growth and opportunity that will not only impact the world for good with new technology, but will make our District a beacon on the hill for freedom and opportunity. The key to this success is jobs, where applicants receive two, three, four and five job offers, rather than having to sign up for two or three part-time positions just to make ends meet. We must not settle for less.
Dan Cox Stands With Governor Hogan In Overturning the Rain Tax and Opposing Raskin's Carbon Tax
"It's because of his smart and reasoned opposition to the at least 40 new taxes passed by the O'Malley administration that Governor Hogan was elected and is so liked in Maryland by Democrats, Independents and Republicans alike," said Dan in response to his opponent's support for the storm-water "rain tax" while exempting government from the same regulations placed on the people.
Minority churches, non-profits, homes and businesses in urban Baltimore and Silver Spring have been targeted and harmed by outrageous "rain taxes" supported and passed by the strong arm and vote of my opponent, who served as a leader in passing the rain tax. If these same policies are taken to Congress the entire state will suffer as will the country.
"My opponent confuses science and uses naturally occurring carbon-dioxide as a scare-tactic to try to use big-government and big-business to take over our personal, private lives.
"We all know we exhale carbon dioxide. Though we might wish to tax bad breath, it is no excuse to mandate "massive" taxes on carbon "footprints" like my opponent wants, and thereby increase our pain at the pump every time we try to get outdoors and enjoy the sunshine and trees," Dan explained.
"My opponent gave us the Rain Tax, and now he wants a "Breath' Tax," through carbon "foot-print" taxes which will hurt us at the gas-pump while we seek to get outdoors and step foot into the environment and breathe," Dan says. "I will fight every day for the right to live and breathe in freedom," Dan affirms.
