David Walters on Tax Reform


Cut taxes for middle & lower classes first

I support tax cuts, but not at the expense of our future financial security or national defense or the retirement security of our elderly. Tax cuts for poor and middle class families should be our priority -- tax cuts that let families live their values.

Cut wasteful programs instead of raising taxes

While Governor, I reduced the size of government while increasing funding for education during a time of limited increased revenues. I successfully opposed all tax increase proposals. It is not an easy or simple process to identify low priority government programs that have outlived their usefulness and to eliminate these programs so that funding for higher priority programs can be increased. I did this in state government, and I will encourage these kind of savings in our federal government.
