Raise Sails, Not Taxes
The pandemic has left Rhode Island with significant revenue loss after forced government shutdowns. Now, legislators are being pushed by public-employee unions and the socialist-left to make us pay for their incompetence ... by seeking to raise our income and gas taxes. These are not burdens Ocean Staters can bear. Learn More
TCI = MONEY OUT OF OUR POCKETS = FEWER JOBS
A major study by the RI Center for Freedom & Prosperity found that the Transportation Climate Initiative (TCI), in 5 years will:
Result in $1205/yr less money for the average household and will disproportionately harm low-income families
Result in a net loss of 1856 Rhode Island jobs
Reduce investment in business by $826 MILLION
Reduce state economic output by $416 MILLION per year
- TCI is unfair: under the scheme, global carbon emissions would be reduced by just 0.0000016, while Ocean Staters would bear ALL of the above costs
The worst time to raise taxes is during an economic crisis. Jobs and businesses will be destroyed, while your family will have less disposable income. The left only cares about their precious state budget and keeping spending levels high … they don’t care about your business or family budget.
High taxes have long plagued Rhode Island. Already with the worst business climate in America, residents have been forced to leave our state in droves.
It’s time to tell legislators to stop with the high taxes!
We need Rhode Island to become a more prosperous place to raise a family and build a career…and maybe even own our own boat.
