For all Virginians

Weekly Roundup – March 17

LEARN

Ed Gillespie released his “Cutting Taxes for ALL Virginians” Plan calling for a ten percent across-the-board cut in Virginia’s individual income tax rates, the first income tax rate cut since rates were established in 1972. Once enacted, the plan will put nearly $1,300 more back into the pocket of a family of four and create more than 50,000 new full-time private-sector jobs. The full plan can be found here.

ENDORSEMENT OF THE WEEK

Several economists and tax experts including Grover Norquist, president and Founder of Americans for Tax Reform, praised Ed’s “Cutting Taxes for ALL Virginians” Plan.

“Ed Gillespie has demonstrated a real and measurable commitment to cutting taxes, with an actual policy proposal and not just political rhetoric. Ed’s plan is a genuine tax cut for families and businesses, not like the so-called ‘revenue-neutral’ plans that shift the tax burden from one group of taxpayers to another that we so often see from political candidates. I am impressed and Virginia taxpayers should be too, since it will make their Commonwealth more competitive with surrounding states again.”

-Grover Norquist, Founder and President of Americans for Tax Reform
