Concord, NH - Following yesterday's Union Leader article, in which Dan Feltes claims he is taking "The Pledge" against a broad-based sales and income tax, NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek released the following statement:
“Since Dan Feltes has previously supported an income tax, his claim that he is opposed to a broad-based sales and income tax is a flat-out lie. Just this past legislative session, Feltes tried to sneak an income tax masked as a paid family medical leave plan through the legislature. As if that's not enough, Feltes' apparent opposition to broad-based taxes runs afoul to his own long-standing record. While running his campaigns for State Senate, Feltes took no issue saying that all revenue options should be left on the table - including the income tax he was championing just months ago. Make no mistake - Dan Feltes is a leading champion of an income tax among New Hampshire Democrats. The NHGOP is happy to remind the people of New Hampshire of Dan Feltes' pro-tax record, which is detailed at our Feltes2020.com website."
