Here is Indiana's current “tax cut” plan:

• Reduce the increase in tax deductible property taxes and shift the entire tax burden to non-deductible sales taxes.

• Increase the local income tax

• Reduce no government spending


The bipartisan government-reform panel led by Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Randall Shepard and former Gov. Joe Kernan recommend the elimination of 1,155 units of government and 5,833 fewer elected officials statewide saving $400 million each year.
We've got to quit governing like this!

Message from former Governor Joe Kernan:

Study shows that Kernan-Shepard recommendations would result in between $200 and $400 million in savings each year
