Dropped

January 15th, 2014

State House Speaker Joseph Souki has dropped his call for an income tax cut.

The Maui Democrat had said last year that a 2009 income tax increase on the wealthy should end early.

But now Souki says the state should simply let the tax increase -- which was approved to help the state get through the recession -- expire as scheduled at the end of 2015.

The tax increase pushed Hawaii's highest tax rate to 11 percent, among the highest in the nation.

    Souki is a DINO and having the support of the republican party.
    He should switch sides and next election run as a republican, tea bagger.
