Meatheads for Tax Relief

From Roth & Company, P.C.

Meatheads for Tax Relief

The group "Iowans for Tax Relief" has a name that belies its purpose. It supports special interest carve-outs and corporate welfare tax subsidies that shrink the tax base and raise the rates on the rest of us. It also refuses to even consider eliminating the deduction for state income taxes in exchange for lower rates.

I came across this article complaining about Iowans for Tax Relief and could have sworn it was written recently because it's quite relevant to this whole fiasco with Ed Failor. This was written on March 1 2006!

Wow so it appears this organization already has a reputation in Iowa. They keep raising taxes on the regular tax payer and lowering taxes on the corporations according to this article. This isn't hard to believe because Ed Failor has been tied to American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) who has corporate interests.
