Gov. Mike Pence ran for office promising a 10 percent tax cut. Now he wants additional taxes to make sure mega corporations don’t have to pay Indiana taxes. Not even to cover the costs for police and fire departments, road improvements etc. No, he wants us to pay their share as well as our own.
School districts had to add one more tax on us to support our schools. He wants to add another for corporations.
But there is no talk of cutting off the taxpayer “gifts” or subsidies to these corporations. Does the billionaire Romney family really need $37 million every year and no taxes to operate Bain Capital? Do the horse racing tracks really need $58 million to operate? The millions in profits are not even mentioned.
So how much more of your heard-earned money has to go to these corporations that make great profits and still want more?
