Gov. Pence Cuts Taxes
Gov. Pence Cuts Taxes
Gov. Mike Pence talks to the press after making an appeal for a 10% income tax cut to the Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce in April 2013. Pence compromised with legislative Republican leaders for a 5% income tax cut, along with an expedited repeal of the state's inheritance tax, and cuts to corporate and financial institution taxes. Pence hailed it as the largest tax cut in Indiana history and intends to match a pitch for jobs in the Midwest's lowest taxed state. Gov. Pence inherited an 8% jobless rate and after six months in office, it had increased to 8.4%.

  • Zody continues to press Gov. Holcomb on health reform impacts
    “Leaders take a clear, concise position and lay out a path forward. Instead, Gov. Holcomb has artfully dodged taking a position on federal health care legislation. He knows it could cost the Hoosier economy billions of dollars, close rural hospitals and threaten progress made fighting Indiana’s opioid epidemic. The Holcomb Administration is keeping Hoosiers in the dark, refusing to release the analysis of the impact of federal action on health care, something the governor himself said he’d do. A number of Holcomb’s Republican governor colleagues have come out against Senate Republicans’ latest health care bill. They’ve stood up against the bill’s devastating cuts to Medicaid and said ‘no’. It seems a blind loyalty to his political party and not the millions of Hoosiers he serves is driving his actions. Yes, or no, do you support a repeal only of the Affordable Care Act and the end of HIP 2.0 as we know it, Governor Holcomb? When will you release your administration’s analysis of this bill’s impact on the Indiana economy and Hoosiers’ health care?” - Indiana Democratic Chairman John Zody, on Gov. Eric Holcomb’s refusal to release an administration analysis of the Senate Republican health legislation and the impacts on Indiana health care ahead of today's procedural vote.

  • Expect more White House chaos
     Months ago I speculated on how many Trump cabinet appointees would last a year. Today, President Trump is openly conspiring to terminate Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and National Security Advisory H.R. McMaster appear to be tenuous. So does Chief of Staff Reince Priebus. And new comm director Anthony Scaramucci is threatening a leak purge. All of this comes as “all options are on the table” with regard to North Korea, where the Chinese are now moving military assets at the border. And Trump’s speech to the Boy Scouts last night? My reaction as an Eagle Scout is this: About the most unScout performance I’ve ever witnessed. - Brian A. Howey, publisher

Should Donald Trump release recent tax returns, like every major party nominee has done over the past 40 years?
