Berger’s Louisiana tax plan

Bobby JindalMaybe it’s no coincidence that Senator Phil Berger’s new plan to cut taxes at the top, reduce public services and raise taxes on the working poor appears to have a lot in common with Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal’s failed tax plan. It turns out the new and schnazzy website Berger unveiled today was produced by a conservative Louisiana ad firm – Innovative Advertising LLC.

Paul NewbyThese are the same fun people who took all of the funneled, conservative bucks last fall to produce the embarrassing Paul Newby for Supreme Court TV blitz. The group even brags about the Newby ad on its website

All in all, this doesn’t bode well for the character of the tax debate we are about to have in North Carolina.
