Basic Principle: No matter what form relief or reforms take, republicans support minimizing taxes to the lowest appropriate level possible in order to maintain work incentives in support of the American Dream, minimize unnecessary government growth and waste, and stimulate the dynamic growth of our economy.
"From that we derive our commitment to limited constitutional government, to economic freedom, and the rule of law. The creation of wealth by an individual is the extension of his rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. To impose confiscatory taxes or burdensome regulations robs that individual of God-given rights. In economic freedom as an extension and natural result of those rights - low taxes, minimum regulations." D. Scholl
"Lower taxes which boosts the economy and helps all of us achieve the American dream in tough times." Judy Biviano Lloyd, Bay Area Regional Chair, Bush-Cheney 2000
"Taxes and government budgets should be simplified and easily read and understood by a high school graduate. Most 'reforms' would be unnecessary if we know where the money is coming from and where it is going." Tom Jones, Placer County Republican
"LOWER TAXES: Tax rates in California are among the highest in the nation. Though property taxes have been held fairly constant by Proposition 13, the recent vote to allow a 55% majority to approve school bonds may break the dam on that protection. Moreover, as the "owner" of a small corporation, the $800 a year minimum franchise tax is a killer. My corporate Federal income taxes are not that high. Giving tax money to the government, and building up a surplus as we had done in previous years, is like giving blood to a vampire. It's never enough. It's time to give power back to the producers and the people, not those who have become dependent on the government for their very existence, such as recipients of welfare, environmental groups, power companies, etc. It does not need to be that way, and it's time to start weaning them away from that dependence. Besides, our Legislators buy votes by creating and sustaining those dependencies, taking money from me and other hard-working Californians so they can keep their cushy jobs." Rosemary Loven, Director, Region I, Central Division, California Federation of Republican Women
