Pat McCrory: Fight unnecessary & burdensome federal taxes & regulations

As governor, Pat McCrory will fight unnecessary and burdensome mandates, taxes and regulations from the federal government. As long as North Carolina is subject to onerous mandates, taxes and regulations, especially relating to healthcare, businesses will be hesitant to expand or hire new workers because they cannot predict the future costs.

Elizabeth Dole: Sales tax, income tax, food tax, liquor tax: it’s too much

Dole said she had had enough. “My opponent has a long history of increasing North Carolina taxes across the board,” Dole said, “whether it’s sales tax, income tax, food tax, liquor tax, tobacco tax, tax on the wealthy, tax on the middle income, tax on the low income.... She has a record of turning a blind eye to immigration enforcement.”
