BIRMINGHAM, ALA. — Today, the Tim James Campaign releases a new radio ad to coincide with the campaign’s tv ad released earlier this week, titled "Death and Taxes."
The full script of the new radio ad is as follows:
Ben Franklin said,"There are only two things certain in life: death and taxes." Now, thanks to Kay Ivey, there's a third… Death, taxes and Kay Ivey's gas tax increase that goes up automatically without a vote forever.
Governor Ivey and the political crowd found a way to raise taxes forever… without having to vote on them. Gasoline is a commodity. It goes up and down — when they did it, gas was under two bucks. Now, it's over $3.
All of this taken together is very hard on your paycheck — Kay Ivey's gas tax increase that goes up automatically without a vote.
It's my opinion that the time has come to give back to the people of Alabama a tax cut.
I'm Tim James, and as Governor, I will repeal the never-ending gas tax increase, cause working folks need a break.
It's time to fight back.
