ELECTION: Carrell backs regressive tax system

We have the most regressive tax system of any state in the country. State Sen. Mike Carrell has served for 18 years and has shown he is unwilling to have a conversation about changing the tax system so the state can provide the services for which we, the people, have voted.

The falsely named “supermajority” initiative, which again is on the ballot, would make it impossible to fix our taxes. This law has repeatedly given a small group of 17 legislators out of 148 the ability to stop anything. Carrell wants to be one member of that small group of 17 who say “no” all the time.

It’s time to say “no” to Carrell.
