One thing the Tuesday debate between Gov. Pat McCrory and Attorney General Cooper made crystal clear: If Cooper is elected, he will raise our taxes.
While the cornerstone of McCrory’s “Carolina Comeback” has been to put our state government on a long overdue diet, Cooper would not pledge to not raise taxes when given the opportunity. Most likely, he will resort to “ever-so-slight” sales tax increases to fund his wish list.
We are doing much better now, and we do not need to go back to the Easley and Perdue days of state government in debt and spending out of control.
Cooper should be ashamed of this destructive position that would move us backward.
Never miss a local story.
