Thank you Senator Davis for raising my taxes. As with the majority of North Carolina citizens who earn less than $84,000 a year, my total state tax bill went up. Most of the promised tax cuts went to the higher income taxpayers and large corporations. So much income was lost by these cuts that the state budget is now in the red. You have to admire Senator Davis faith in "trickle down economics" even though that economic philosophy has never been proven to work.
Thank you Senator Davis for supporting the redistribution of wealth. He supports legislation that redistributes sale tax revenue to "poorer" counties. That could mean the loss of about $1.5 million for Macon County and a loss of $44,000 for the town of Franklin. This is money you and I would have to make up with our local tax dollars. Could it be that most of those "poorer" rural counties vote mostly Republican, and most of those "rich" counties vote mostly Democratic?
