MGFPA joined more than 27 business associations, owners, and advocates this morning to launch the Vote NO on Question One campaign. The $310 million income tax referendum scam that over promises and under delivers in Maine.
- Question One is a TAX SCAM
- Question One is an ELDER SCAM
- Question One is a BIG GOVERNMENT SCAM
Question One is a TAX SCAM
- Largest income tax increase in the history of Maine.
- Creates a 10.95% per household income tax bracket that would make Maine have the highest tax rate in the country.
- Hits Maine’s self-employed and small business owners especially hard and makes it more difficult for small, family-owned businesses to survive.
Question One is an ELDER SCAM
- Elder and disabled Mainers will be forced to turn over their private health information, including home addresses and contact information, to an unlimited number of private groups.
- Requires no income limit or minimum residency requirements for recipients of the benefits. This means even millionaires and out of staters would receive free services.
- Over promises on what it can deliver to Maine’s most vulnerable; the elderly and disabled will be put on waitlists for services in addition to these already on waitlists for these services.
Question One is a BIG GOVERNMENT SCAM
- Creates a shadow-government board with no direct accountability to the taxpayers
- of Maine.
- Violates the Maine Constitution, the U.S. Constitution and federal privacy laws.
- A virtually identical scheme in Illinois has already been ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court, making the proposal a waste of taxpayer dollars.
- Require EVERY independent home health care worker – even family members providing homecare – to be represented by a State Employee Union and pay mandatory service fees from that Union.
