Like city income taxes? Rep. Kenny Hulshof’s your man!

Missouri gubernatorial candidate Sarah Steelman understands that burdensome tax policies inhibit economic growth.  Rep. Kenny Hulshof?  Not so much:

Steelman would phase out the tax over a five or six year period and work with the cities on solving any temporary shortfall. She also comments that the cities could probably trim some wasteful spending to make up a good part of the shortfall until new economic gains kick in.

Steelman doesn’t specify what alternate revenue sources she has in mind, but says she draws ideas from conservative think-tank The Show Me Institute in St. Louis. MU economics professor Joseph Haslag has done most of their earnings tax research.

[…]

In Missouri, the choice is clear.  State Treasurer Sarah Steelman is following the lead of the free market Show-Me Institute.  Rep. Kenny Hulshof is following the lead of Democratic mayors like St. Louis’ Francis Slay.

You can donate to Sarah Steelman’s campaign here.  Also, make sure to volunteer if you’re able.
