Scott Hawkins Takes Aim (and fires!) at Tax Code
Makes a High-powered Point About Governor and House Democrats Income Tax Proposals from Last Year
(ANCHORAGE, AK) – Today, one day ahead of the federal tax deadline, gubernatorial candidate Scott Hawkins released a web video on Facebook and YouTube where he uses a 12ga shotgun to shoot a big hole in the U.S. tax code.
Hawkins says in the video, “It’s tax season, and if you are like me you are writing a big ‘ole check to the US government, and you don’t much like dealing with this tax code.” He then turns and promptly fires a 12ga bear slug through the first 500 pages of the code, which is hanging on a range target.
Later, speaking to the camera, he brandishes the shot-up copy of the code and says, “this is the monstrosity that our governor and House Democrats want to bring to Alaska in their proposed income tax from last year.”
“We don’t need a personal income tax. We need spending cuts and we need to live within our means. And we need a spending cap.
Speaking about the video, Hawkins said “this is a fun way to make a point on a beautiful April evening. I think it captures what many Alaskans are feeling during tax season. It’s a great time to point out that we don’t need that sort of thing at the Alaska state level.”
