Democrat Gov. Roy Cooper Stonewalls Tax Cut For North Carolina Workers And Job Creators

Democrat Governor Roy Cooper is sending a clear message to workers and businesses across North Carolina that he has zero interest in reducing their tax burden.

WRAL-TV reports that a tax cut that would save North Carolina businesses roughly $140 million by substantially rolling back the state’s franchise tax “has support from key leaders in both General Assembly chambers.” But a spokesman for Cooper has already indicated that the governor is against the bill, making it clear that he does not want to fight for lower taxes on the businesses creating jobs in his state.

North Carolinians deserve a governor who will work tirelessly to improve their state’s business climate and help entrepreneurs to remain competitive in a changing economy. Unfortunately, Roy Cooper doesn’t appear to be up to the task.
