Bill White Wants to Raise Your Taxes

Liberal Trial Lawyer Bill White wants to raise your taxes if he is elected Governor of Texas. Is this what you want from your Governor during a time of hardship?

Instead of raising your taxes Governor Rick Perry wants to Keep Texas Moving Forward with his positive prescription for economic recovery:

1. Don’t spend all the money.
2. Give people tax relief.
3. Keep the regulatory climate fair and predictable.
4. Fund an accountable education system to ensure an educated, skilled workforce.

The Governor’s plan has been working, just look at what the independent organizations and magazines have had to say about Texas!

One response to “Bill White Wants to Raise Your Taxes

  1. I think it is important to note the difference between “wanting to raise taxes” and “not ruling out a tax increase.”

    It also warrants mentioning that Houston is consistently ranked as a top performer in business and as a city that will quickly recover from the economic slump (as noted in your above references as well). Bill White, as the former mayor of Houston, helped make that city leader in national job growth–adding more jobs than 37 states combined—while cutting the property tax rates.
