Time for tax cuts
May 24, 2006 at 12:28 pm
Louisiana families tell me time and again about their hard work to make ends meet. Between paying for groceries, gasoline for our cars and trucks and energy costs to cool our homes, it’s hard for many families to find enough each month to pay the bills, much less try to help kids through school or think about putting some away for a rainy day. Saving is difficult when taxes are high, but luckily tax relief is on its way for every income tax payer, and that means more money in the pockets of Louisiana families. Congress recently passed the Tax Increase Prevention and Reconciliation Act, which will keep our taxes low and keep the economy growing.
