Andy Beshear on Corporations

 

 


No consumption tax on basic needs; but ok on luxury goods

Q: Do you support Kentucky eliminating the income tax and going to a more consumption-tax based model?

A: No. I'm not going to work to jack up the price of milk or bread for a family that is already seeing their bills go up while their wages stay stagnant. The solution to Kentucky's fiscal problems is not to put more of the tax burden on working families. The solution to Kentucky's fiscal problems is not to put more of the tax burden on hardworking Kentuckians and take it off those who have already benefited from corporate tax giveaways. I'm focused on reforms that will crack down on tax incentives to corporations that don't pay a living wage and closing unnecessary loopholes like tax breaks for private jet purchases. If you can afford a private jet, or a luxury boat, you can afford to pay a little sales tax on it. What doesn't work is the Matt Bevin approach--calling people names, bullying anyone who disagrees with him. We are better than this.
