Stacey Abrams on Tax Reform

 

 


Ask everyone to do their fair share

Families deserve a government committed to creating vibrant economy, promoting rural recovery and helping small businesses thrive. Democrats understand that citizens expect more of their government than simply taxes and regulation. We want government that works for and with the people. We expect a government that asks everyone to do his or her fair share and to play by the rules. We demand a government that understands its business--to spend our tax dollars wisely.

I support legislation that promotes shared responsibility: legislation that fixes government so it works for everyone, promotes democracy and civil engagement, and protects taxpayer's investments. We must reject attempts to limit success to the privileged few and to restrict personal liberty.

This balance--fostering a broad range of opportunity while fighting government infringement on our freedoms--this balance is the objective of the Georgia House Democratic Caucus.

Keep graduated income tax instead of 5.4% flat tax

HB 329: Would eliminate Georgia's graduated income tax structure and replace it with a 5.4 percent flat tax, regardless of income. Also proposes a modest Earned Income Tax Credit for working families, equal to 10 percent of the federal tax credit.

MY VOTE: NO. While this plan will close important loopholes that penalize low-income married couples, in its current form, the legislation increases taxes on single low-income taxpayers.
