ScrambleWatch Q&A: Republican Marilyn Zerull on Taxes

Marilyn Zerull is one of three Republican rivals seeking the two seats in the House of Representatives in Legislative District 26. We asked her some questions on taxes.

Do you support the repeal of the state property tax?

I’m always in support of the repeal of any property tax.

SInce it will cost the state $250 million, what should the state cut to make up for the lost revenue?

Wasteful programs such as Planned Parenthood and some cuts in education, but only to support other parts of education. For instance, I don’t think the state should be paying for all-day daycare. I think that should be the responsibility of the parents. I also don’t believe we should be funding benefits for illegal aliens such as free health care and free education and all the freebies that we offer. I’m not familiar with all parts of the budget but I do know that the government can be run like a household. When the family gets hit with a crisis, the family has to cut back.

Do you support borrowing for school construction?

No, I think borrowing just puts the financial burden on future generations.

Would you vote for the TIME initiative, which increases the sales tax by a penny per dollar to fund highway, rail and local transportation projects?

No. I don’t believe in raising taxes at all. Things like this should be paid for by the people that use them.
