The moderator pointed out that Hinckley's platform called for reducing the corporate tax rate, job training, paying teachers more, all while capping spending; "How do you plan to pay for those promises?"
"You pay for it by growing the economy. You don't have teachers, police or firefighters if you don't have people paying taxes," Hinckley said. "We need to make Rhode Island the most attractive place in the world to do business. Businesses move to where they are treated well." Acknowledging he would have not control over Rhode Island tax policy, Hinckley said if elected he would urge state lawmakers to change the business climate.
