Issues

Campaign themes

2012

In the 2012 campaign, Taylor voiced support for progressive taxation for homeowners and businesses, the Affordable Care Act, the formation of a state-owned banks, and $400 tax refunds to homeowners from the state surplus. On the matter of natural resources, she said, "Some people think of it as a gold mine. I think of it as the goose that laid a golden egg. A gold mine only has a certain amount of gold. When it’s gone, it’s gone. It doesn’t make any difference what you do. The goose is a living thing. If you get greedy and kill it, you’re out of golden eggs. Our goose is clean air, clean water and scenic vistas."[1]
