Taxes

 

For far too long, liberal politicians in Raleigh failed to balance our budgets and make the same tough decisions that hardworking families must do every day across North Carolina. By 2012, after decades of wasteful spending and higher taxes, North Carolina was faced with a $3 billion budget deficit and record high taxes. Since then, I’m proud to have helped lead the fight to restore fiscal sanity in Raleigh and balance our budget by eliminating wasteful spending and enacting conservative fiscal reforms. At the same time, we have successfully cut taxes for our citizens, put money aside for a rainy day fund in case of economic downturns or natural disasters and given pay raises and bonuses to our state employees and teachers.
