School choice, not a new, oppressive tax, offers students better opportunities
National School Choice Week highlights the path to improved public education
By Chantal Lovell
Liberals have already begun to tout the margin tax proposal that will appear on the ballot this November.
Because implementing a modified gross receipts tax that would increase taxes on businesses already losing money isn’t a winning sound bite, liberals are trying to spin it differently.
Proponents of the margin tax are instead deceptively billing it as the Education Initiative, saying the money raised would go into Nevada’s Distributive School Account. It’s important to note, however, that even if the tax passes, legislators wouldn’t actually have to spend more on education. Indeed, total education spending could even decrease.
Of course, the Nevada State Education Association, which spent over $640,000 getting signatures for the margin tax, claims that additional money will improve Nevada’s education.
To recruit, support and advocate for candidates for public office who support private sector job creation, low taxation, a responsible regulatory environment, and effective delivery of essential state services.
