“Tax and Spend” Democrats and “Spend and Tax” Republicans…Nothing Ever Changes…
Just Say NO to Tax On Food
(Recent Press Release) "I have ten grandchildren and I am worried about their future. For years we have elected “Tax and Spend” Democrats and “Spend and Tax” Republicans. Nothing changes…the endless increases in taxes continue forever, the cost of government continues to grow, the size of government continues to grow, the job market continues to shrink, businesses small and large continue to give up and go under,” stated Janine Hansen, Independent American candidate for State Senate District 19.
“Albert Einstein identified this syndrome as “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results.”
“As evidenced by the recent Chamber of Commerce Debate in Elko on Sept. 17th, both my Democrat opponent, Harley Kulkin, and my Republican opponent, Pete Goicoechea have either voted for higher taxes, support higher taxes, or have advocated for higher taxes. Goicoechea, in 2010 even proposed a 2% sales tax on food,” continued Hansen.
“I oppose any and all tax increases particularly a sales tax on food which hurts those least able to afford it. The taxpayers can not survive even a little bit more in taxes. In State Senate District 19 if you elect a “Tax and Spend” Democrat or a “Spend and Tax” Republican you can rest assured they will vote for more taxes,” continued Hansen.
Government Budget Reform and Educational Reform
“We must have basic reforms including performance based budgeting which holds state government agencies accountable for their budgets. We must do all we can to eliminate wasteful government spending. There were 44 recommendations in the 2010 SAGE Commission created by Governor Gibbons, most of which have not been implemented, stated Janine Hansen.
“For the sake of our children we must reform education as Governor Sandoval has proposed including: increased local autonomy and flexibility, merit pay for teachers, an end to teacher tenure, no social promotion for third graders if they can’t read, allow students to attend private schools and corporate-tuition scholarships.
“These reforms are based on Florida’s experience which had the same low tests as Nevada in 1999. Since these reforms were instituted and the results have been stunning. Florida’s fourth graders have increased their reading scores by two grade levels in the years since. During the same timeframe, Nevada’s scores have increased by only half a grade level. More money is not the answer. Reform is the way to increase academic performance and save tax dollars,” concluded Janine Hansen.
