The author reflects on the need for Republican state assembly candidates to sign the Taxpayer Protection Pledge. He notes that it is not the time for the legislative candidates to delay their position on the tax increases. He cites that 14 Republican legislators voted for the largest tax increase in Nevada back in 2003. The author relates that more Republican voters are leaving the party because of the neutrality displayed by Republican legislative candidates on the issue of tax increases.
