Carney and his top lieutenants fear that Kowalko’s plan pushing top wage earners into a rate of 7.8 percent would cause wealthy Delawareans to leave the state –– particularly with Pennsylvania’s 3.07 percent flat income tax rate looming right over the border.
Folks !!!!!!!!!!! We need to keep an eye on those state legislators who supports Carney’s plan! A vote for Carney’s plan will be a vote out of office for those legislators voting yes!
“We have been squandering opportunity after opportunity to have a sustainable economy that can weather the storm,” said Kowalko, who has sponsored several bills proposing two new, higher brackets. “The only way to do that is with a proper progressive personal income tax structure that doesn’t demand an arm and a leg from the wealthy but does ask the wealthier to pay a little bit more.
Support for Kowalko’s plan is the way to go!
It sucks we have to raise taxes to cover Jack Markell’s $$$ blunders !
I know Markell stuck it $$$$$$$$ up Carney ass going out the door! However, Carney protecting the wealthiest is an insult to the middle-class! We’ll watch the vote and pacybacks will be a bitch at the 2018 polls.
