NC Gov. Easley going back on his word to NC taxpayers again.

In 2001, Governor Easley and state lawmakers agreed to increase the income tax and statewide sales tax for a “temporary” period of two years; however, the two “temporary” tax hikes were extended in 2003 and again in 2005. This year, leading up to November’s election, lawmakers voted to end the “temporary” tax hike, but now Governor Easley has said he is open to going back on his word and making the state sales tax hike permanent. The “temporary” tax hikes are set to expire on July 1, 2007 if the legislature does not act to make them permanent or extend them.

Governor Easley is just another Democrat that thinks he knows how to spend the money you earned better than you do...
