Primary area of interest is the tax burden on the residents of Missouri. We are taxing our best natural resources right out of the state… our people. Young families must be able to do more than survive financially; they must be allowed to prosper. Senior citizens should receive the social security due to them without once again being taxed on that income. While it is understood that government needs money to provide the services set forth in our constitution, programs provided by the government that are unnecessary, should be limited and controlled by strict budgetary oversight.
