Here's what you gotta do. You gotta cut all that we can possibly cut. I've got to have everybody in this state pay a half of a penny in additional sales tax. There is no way around it. I've got to have you pay instead of $30 in DMV fees, I've got to have you pay 50.
The other thing is this, in trying to be fair, I've got to have our businesses pay two-tenths of one percent in a tax that would be equivalent to a B&O tax. It is a tax that Ohio charges 25 hundredths percent. We would charge 20. And the other last thing I will talk to you about is I've got to have ten cents a gallon on gasoline. Now, I am telling you: If you don't do this, you're dead.
I want to sunset them: three years, you can get rid of this.
I'm for limited government and free enterprise; I'm also for peace and civil liberties; I support the freedom to marry as well as the freedom to carry. I believe in "live and let live."
So it is that the United States, who a generation ago was the economic master of all it surveyed following World War II, now finds itself struggling to compete against a rising cadre of new economic powers. John Raese, businessman, sounded that alarm, too, in 2010 and 2012. Clearly, he wants us to be able to compete effectively on all fronts again.
That's tough to do when our government has to pay so much of our budget just to pay the interest on a $16 trillion national debt--another Raese deeply-felt concern. Raese's perspective is as valid today as it was then. Given our ongoing economic problems today, his words ring true even more.
