Would you support a sales tax increase and an income tax surcharge to help ease the budget deficit?
Asked at the Lawrence Public Library on April 30, 2003
“I’d support it because if it’s mainly for education that’s very important.”
“In general, I would not support an increase in taxes.”
“Why doesn’t the Legislature take a pay cut instead? Everyone else, say the airline industry people, are taking pay cuts. This is the time for our Legislature to show the people that they are in earnest.”
“Yes, for education I would.”
