Skip to comments.[Incumbent TX RINO Sen.]Deuell: Make Cuts, but Raise Taxes Too
Posted on 05/19/2014 2:41:24 PM PDT by JeepersFreepers
State Sen. Robert Deuell, R-Greenville, would rather raise taxes a little bit than make the cuts lawmakers are considering now...
Deuell has been a proponent of a 10-cent increase in gasoline taxes for some time...
...I would hate to make cuts this session and come back in two years and find out we didn't have to make those cuts," he said.
...he would support a broader sales tax too. He also said the state should use "most" of the $9.4 billion Rainy Day Fund.
...we're a low-tax state and we've got people in need.

Duelle, hope you get defeated by Bob Hall. You are another RINO.
Dallas Tea Party co-founder and attorney Ken Emanuelson added, The primary results clearly show incumbent Bob Deuell has a very big problem in this race. He knows full well he cant run for reelection on his voting record in Austin. If voters pay attention to Bob Deuells failing grades from conservative groups, his support for death panels, his support for in-state tuition for illegal aliens, scores of new taxes, contraceptives for children without parental consent and free needles for drug users, the voters of Senate District 2 are very likely to throw him out. He knows this and is pulling out all the stops to distract voters from the issues by dumping all the mud he can on surging challenger Bob Hall.

I would cut 2015 federal spending from a proposed $3.8T to $3.2T, and cut taxes from $3T to $2.9T. For 2016, I would cut federal spending from that $3.2T to $2.7T, still 50% larger than under Bill Clinton’s last budget 13 years ago, and cut taxes from $2.9T to $2.8T. [And I’d only stretch the large cut out over two years to reduce the economic shock of doing the right thing.] After that, I’d continue cutting real federal spending each year and cut taxes by half as much to start paying down the national debt. Raise taxes? Nope. FedGov is already a bloated threat to freedom and to the Constitution.
I’d DEFINITELY support him on the gas tax, providing it actually was used for highways. Especially considering the alternative here is simply more toll roads (and yes, there is no other way to stop that), which cost an average of TEN TIMES the amount of the gas tax, per mile.
Otherwise, he can get lost regarding raising the sales tax or other taxes, as they ALREADY adjust themselves for inflation and population growth.
