Perdue Breaks Promise, Reaches Into Pockets of Taxpayers

Raleigh – Gov. Beverly Perdue is breaking her promise to North Carolina’s taxpayers by proposing more than $1 billion in new taxes in the next two years.

Below is a statement from Senate President Pro Tempore Phil Berger (R-Rockingham):

“Instead of making tough choices to tighten the state’s belt, Gov. Perdue is balancing the budget on the backs of North Carolina taxpayers and local governments. She is breaking her promise to end the taxes she raised, she is underfunding our retirement system and she is saddling local governments with hundreds of millions in additional expenses. This is not how to get North Carolina back on track.”
