Expenditure and Tax Reduction Reform

By Thomas M.D. "Tom" Warschauer

Candidate for Member of the State Assembly; District 76; Republican Party

This information is provided by the candidate
Tax Reform, Restructuring and Reduction
  • Taxes are too high and too complicated. They are driving away businesses, working families and entrepreneurs.
  • State income taxes do not need to be so complex. We should offer taxpayers an alternative of a simple percentage of their federal tax. This could reduce the cost of the state's Franchise Tax Board.
  • Social spending is out of control. We provide too many benefits at too high a level to too many people. I don't want to take funds from the truly needy. However, many of our benefits have criteria that are too easy to meet and therefore create dependence on the state.
  • Some state employee unions are out of control. This is not good for anyone.
  • Despite being a union member, I am strongly opposed to the excessive power some state workers' unions exert on state and local governments.
  • We need to alter the make-up of bargaining groups to better represent taxpayers.
  • Unsustainable benefits to some employee groups are bankrupting the state and many local governments.
  • I support in principle the changes proposed by the Parsky Commission (Final Report of the Commission on the 21st Century Economy)
