Whereas there is a large and growing body of economic evidence that conclusively demonstrates that taxing income reduces economic activity; and

Whereas many citizens do not contribute to the tax revenues of the state of South Carolina and the federal government of the United States and the need exists to broaden the tax base and ease the burden on each individual; and

Whereas the expansion of the economy of the state and the nation is critical for the continued success of our free enterprise system;
