Democrat Christine Hallquist continues to make tax hikes on Vermont families the centerpiece of her gubernatorial campaign. New video of a campaign event last weekend shows Hallquist stating that if Vermont continues to accept Governor Phil Scott’s policy of opposing new tax increases, “we will be screwed.”
This is just the latest example of Hallquist’s eagerness to embrace tax-and-spend policies. After initially claiming in August that raising taxes was “not something that anyone would want to do,” Hallquist has gone all-in on supporting tax hikes, pledging to increase the property tax, the income tax, and other taxes.
Hallquist has made it clear that if she were elected, Vermonters would be forced to pay more taxes to fund her big government agenda. Vermont can’t afford Christine Hallquist as governor.
