Stephen Noble Smith on Corporations



Help shift who has wealth and political power in our state

Q: What about using the line-item veto as power over the budget?

A: We will use whatever power we have, including the line-item veto, in our to shift wealth and political power towards working class people.

Q: Which gubernatorial power do you personally consider the most important?

A: The two main responsibilities of West Virginia's governor should be to help shift who has wealth and political power in our state. For too long, Governors have served as the agents of out-of-state land companies and CEO's. It's time for our state to be put in the hands of the people.

Raise corporate income tax rate to 9%

Increase corporate income tax rate from 6.5% to 9%, bringing in $57 million in revenue. Enact worldwide combined reporting to eliminate corporate income tax havens, bringing in $68 million in revenue. Task a Small Business Taxpayers Council with the goal of pursuing additional tax plans that aim to shift power away from out-of-state corporations, lobbyists, and CEOs into the hands of local entrepreneurs, small businesses, and communities.

Too often, the criminal justice system has been used to perpetuate inequality. We must shift the focus of the criminal justice system from targeting the people who are in pain, to targeting the people who profit off that pain. We will open two crucial new investigative divisions in the State Police--a Corporate Crime Division and a Political Corruption Division. Each of these divisions will have agents focused on investigating corporate and political discrimination.
