Guinta For Congress - Shea-Porter says ban on NH income tax unnecessary


(Manchester – November 1, 2012) For months, former Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter has been silent on her position regarding a state income tax. This afternoon, after pressure from New Hampshire press, Shea-Porter finally responded. Sadly for taxpayers though, Carol Shea-Porter stayed true to her extreme partisan allies and refused to support the New Hampshire advantage and stated to the Concord Monitor that the amendment banning an income tax in our state “is unnecessary.” As reported by the newspaper, Shea-Porter went on to say “my position is that there is no need to pass a constitutional amendment because no one is proposing a state income tax.” You can read the Concord Monitor story here.

Derek Dufresne, Spokesman for Guinta for Congress released the following statement:

“Just as Carol Shea-Porter refused to listen to her constituents when it came to Obamacare, a national energy tax, or even the wasteful stimulus, the former Congresswoman once again has taken the side of the extreme partisan wing of her party rather than New Hampshire taxpayers.

“Granite Staters have rejected the notion of a broad based tax that would destroy the New Hampshire advantage at every turn. However, once again, Shea-Porter has refused to listen to the New Hampshire voters she’s supposed to represent and has sided with the ultra-partisan wing of her party instead.”
