Instead of seeking to shape Rhode Island’s future with the proven ideals of a free-society, Governor Raimondo’s proposed 2019-2020 budget is a stunning departure from America’s core values and, instead, would put our state on a “Rhode to Serfdom.”
The Governor’s regressive budget points us 180 degrees in the opposite direction of where we need to head, and would stifle any opportunity for growth.
In Governor Raimondo’s proposed budget, new government-imposed health insurance mandates would further burden already distressed families as well as employers who are already suffering from one of the worst business climates in the nation. There are a bevy of new taxes and fees that will further restrain economic growth. The proposed budget takes a giant step backwards towards a centrally-planned society, where government controls more and more aspects of our lives.
The entire country is thriving, economically, from reduced government intrusion into our lives, but these progressive-left policies would increase dependency on government.
Equally disturbing, the budget contains no meaningful remedies to the many problems that plague our state, such as high taxes across the board, high energy and healthcare costs, and onerous regulatory burdens on job-producers.
For these reasons and more, Rhode Island suffers from an epidemic of people and businesses fleeing our state, is it time for us to build a wall to keep people in? Click here now to read more on RIFreedom.org
