The fact that you are asking the questions as a non-resident of Texas is fine. Texas residents are asking the same ones with no answers. Eliminating property taxes is not doable unless we have a state income tax and raise sales taxes. Neither one of these dogs will hunt down here.
I know it is sometimes difficult to assess our political candidates and with all levels of government putting us in deep doo...uh, debt, it has become extremely important to replace those in office.
I found this video of Debra Medina, challenger for Governor in the upcoming primary, in which she is very forthcoming with her plans and ideas to go another direction.
This is part 4,
and the next one, part 5 is even better as she explains with clarity and detail how eliminating property tax will explode the Texas economy. Part 3 is the beginning of her speaking to a group in East Texas and in it she explains how and why she decided to run for Gov in 2008 before the Tea Party, etc. movements.
I urge all who are making judgements about Medina’s positions listen to her explain it to a small group of supporters at a meeting in East Texas. Obviously she wants to make sure no gun registration law comes to Texans and she wants to regain Texan’s freedoms while improving the State’s economy. Her plan is to replace property tax with a consumer tax and she is relying on a study done by a respected state institution.
Please hear her explain it in her own words and then make a judgement on her and her plans for Texas. Thanks.
