Sharron Angle on Tax Reform

 


Extend the Bush-era tax cuts, or it's a tax increase

Angle pushed for extension of the Bush-era tax cuts, arguing that if they were not made permanent "we will experience the largest tax increase in the history of America."

"I personally am not in favor of giving billionaires tax cuts," Reid responded, before guaranteeing that he would not support an increase in taxes for middle class Americans.

Consistent vote against unnecessary tax increases

In the Nevada State Legislature, Sharron Angle was consistently the only vote against unnecessary tax increases and voted against more than 100 attempts to increase taxes and fees.

She sponsored the Angle Property Tax Restraint Initiative (aka Nevada's Prop 13) which placed a hard cap on property tax increases that future Legislatures could not repeal. Sharron Angle was also a co-sponsor of Tax and Spend Control for Nevada, which imposed a constitutional measure to limit government spending.

Supports flat-rate federal tax; opposes increased tax rates.

Angle supports the CC survey questions on flat tax

The Christian Coalition voter guide [is] one of the most powerful tools Christians have ever had to impact our society during elections. This simple tool has helped educate tens of millions of citizens across this nation as to where candidates for public office stand on key faith and family issues.
