Leader of Rhode Islanders Against Excessive Taxation

Young announced he is organizing a rally against proposed tax increases that would hurt business in Providence and throughout the state of Rhode Island.

Chris Young is a 2008 United States Senate Candidate and 2010 Providence Mayoral Candidate. Chris is also the leader of group Rhode Islanders Against Excessive Taxation.

Chris Young stated, "We can not allow those who actually do physical labor to be taxed in place of reducing inflated local and state budgets. This legislation attacks not only the middle class but also the poor who will have to pay passed on taxation with higher prices. I cannot stand by while artists, writers and composers are taxed in Providence, hindering the economic growth to what was once defined as the renaissance city only a few years ago. Excessive taxation only hinders economic growth and stagnates an economy. We as citizens must fight against excessive taxation.
