Working Families Against More Taxes sign now

The State of RI will take in approximately $8 BILLION (RI Budget Department)this year, yet our elected officials continue to spend more money than they receive to fund the government of a population that has been stagnant for decades. Working Families and Local Small Businesses are required to live within their budget, and we expect the same from our Government.

RI has an 11.3\% unemployment rate (Department of Labor and Training), this coupled with the absurd amount of tax burden on the Working Class has resulted in RI families loosing their jobs, homes, and savings. Businesses, jobs, and family members have left RI because 45 other states provide a lower tax burden for citizens to raise their families (Tax Foundation).

We the People of Rhode Island, the voters and taxpayers who fund the state operation, now DEMAND:

1. That the State and Municipal governments of Rhode Island live within their budget, and establish an indefinite FREEZE of any tax or fee increase on any level. This includes includes denying Governor Chafee the ability to tax currently exempt items.

2. That the State create a 5 year plan to transform Rhode Island into one of the top 15 Tax Friendly States (currently RI is #45 - Tax Foundation).

3. That the average Government Sector salary and benefit package are in line with that of the Private Sector.

We the People pay the bills for the Government, We the People are Served by the Government, and We the People have Spoken.
