Taxes

Nathan Schlicher supports raising taxes.

Schlicher told the local media that the state needs "increased taxes of some sort" to pay for more government spending.

Schlicher held to his tax raising promise - voting to increase the death tax on married couples. Then he voted for a plan to raise taxes on working families and small businesses by $900 million.

He even agreed with the Supreme Court's decision to overturn the voter-approved 2/3rds requirement to raise taxes.

We can't afford Nathan Schlicher with our tax dollars.
