Tea For Two

Senator Sam Slom and U.S. Senate candidate John Carroll

Both Senator Slom and John Carroll signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, that commits them to voting against any tax increases.

  1. The reality is that if you don’t increase taxes at least by eliminating the many deductions and or loop wholesand eliminating the capital gains tax, there is no possible way to sustain the current things the government does. Just by virtue of the baby boomers retiring to collect social security and an increasing pool of government/military retirees the tax base has to increase. By agreeing to no new taxes you are agreeing to more annual unbalanced budgets and an ever increasing national debt. In essence passing the buck on to the future generations to pay.

  2. Eliminate government waste before you advocate for more taxes.

  3. What government waste are you focused on eliminating and to what degree will that reduce the annual deficit.

    yeah the taxpayer protection pledge is kind of shibai and oversimplified imo. some guy started getting republicans to start signing it in the 80s, which began the decline of true Reagan republicanism which was more complex than people tend to realize. Lower taxes to stimulate economic systems, not oppose any taxes flat out until ALL “government waste” is eliminated (we know that will NEVER happen right?).

  5. My reason for signing the Taxpayer’s Protection Pledge was precisely because government waste should be addressed before seeking new taxes. Americans are overtaxed when such waste and corruption is still tolerated.
