A busy week on the Norm Semanko media front.
Today, as the federal income tax deadline nears, the state GOP chairman marked the occasion with the following statement:
“I have one question on Tax Day: would you like to pay more of your hard-earned money to the government next year, or would you like to pay less? President Obama wants you to pay more so he can continue funding his wasteful, misguided pet projects like Solyndra, and ridiculous government junkets.
“Republicans believe Idaho families know best when it comes to how they should spend their money, but President Obama and Democrats believe government knows best. This fundamental disagreement cannot be understated.
President Obama’s budget would increase taxes on Americans by $1.9 trillion. This kind of extreme proposal shows what little regard the president has for your hard-earned dollars. It’s time to put real leadership in the White House, someone who believes that Idaho families know better than the government when it comes to spending their money.”
