Tax Reform Advocates Launch Grassroots Campaign 

Advocates for tax reform joined lawmakers in Augusta on Thursday to launch a grassroots campaign they say will fix Maine’s broken tax system.The group says it’s unfair that Maine’s wealthiest, and large corporations, pay a lower tax rate than low and middle income Mainers.The group announced the launch of the “Fair Share Campaign.”They say the path to a fair budget begins with a fair tax system.”Right now, those that have the least are paying the most,” said Bangor Democratic Representative, Adam Goode, “and those that have the means aren’t paying anything close to their fair share. The past few years have made this disparity worse with more tax cuts for the wealthy and more cutbacks to education and healthcare.”To learn more about the campaign, go to Facebook and search for “Fair Share Now.”
