The following Press Release was sent out by the Constitution Party of Idaho. Press releases do not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of those at the Idaho Dispatch. Greg Pruett serves as the State Vice-Chair of the Constitution Party of Idaho.
Coeur d’Alene: This November, voters in Idaho will have to decide on a ballot initiative question known as Prop 1.
Far-left extremist group Reclaim Idaho is pushing the initiative. The group also pushed for Medicaid Expansion several years ago. Expanding government is the organization’s goal, and Republican legislators seem unwilling to challenge the organization’s efforts.
Prop 1 was designed to dump $323 million into the education budget by taxing corporations more and creating a top tax bracket that would rival the one in communist California.
However, Reclaim Idaho’s insane tax hike is even worse than proposed because the tax cuts this year will be reversed, according to the Secretary of State and Attorney General’s office. If the tax cuts are reversed, the bill for Idahoans will be over half a billion dollars.
At a time when Idahoan’s citizens and businesses are struggling, there is no need to do a California-style, Bernie Sanders’ loving tax increase.
The education system in this country is broken. No amount of money can fix it.
There are solutions to fixing the education system, but none of it is going to be fixed with more government and more money. States all across the country struggle to find teachers who want to teach because the system is failing them. Rather than focus on simple education for our children, teachers are forced to deal with the “woke” agenda plaguing this country.
The Constitution Party of Idaho opposes Prop 1 and encourages all Idahoans to vote against the measure.
Additionally, we encourage businesses to come out and reject the proposal. If the measure passes, you can expect these larger businesses to simply pass the extra taxes onto their consumers.
Prop 1 is a tax on all Idahoans, not just the “rich,” as Reclaim Idaho claims.
