- NTLC Analysis of November 2012 California Ballot Propositions
“With the sheer number and complexity of the measures this election, ‘Ballot Fatigue’, and across the board ‘no’ votes can occur. It would be tragic if these measures were swept away by the crescendo of ‘no’s’ deserved by the other eight measures
. These three propositions – 32, 33 and 35 – earned a ‘yes’ vote because they will be of great help to California’s future.” stated Lewis K. Uhler, President of NTLC.
“Props 32, 33 and 35 address, and provide sound solutions to, problems currently confronting California:
• Prop. 32 would halt direct corporate and union political contributions that have led to conflicts of interest and gridlock in the Legislature and would halt the practice of automatic political dues deductions from employees’ wages, making all political contributions entirely voluntary.
• Prop. 33 would intensify competition between California auto insurance companies, broadening ‘continuous coverage’ discount options, so that consumers can enjoy more choices and lower rates.
• Prop. 35 would increase penalties for sex trafficking and require such sex offenders to disclose information about their use of identities on the internet.”
Uhler concludes, “That’s it. The rest of the measures deserve ‘no’ votes because they involve tax increases or otherwise make California less productive and safe.”
- Uhler Comments on Supreme Court Obamacare Ruling
On June 28th, 2012, the Supreme Court of the United States released their landmark ruling on the Affordable Healthcare Act, otherwise known as “Obamacare”.
There were several legal actions against the law, or set of laws, that brought it to the S
upreme Court, one of which involved the National Tax Limitation Committee.
Shortly after the ruling was released, National Tax Limitation Committee President Lew Uhler, released the following statement in a press release:
“In the guise of a tax, the Supreme Court has decided that the American consumer must purchase a particular service, whether they want it or not. Unless we repeal this law, and the tax it imposes, the IRS is now empowered to extract more and increasingly large sums from the income of our citizens. As far as NTLC is concerned, nothing could be more violative of the constitution – and un-American.”
The National Tax Limitation Committee is committed to continuing the fight to limit and prevent unnecessary taxes, of which this has officially been declared.

- Uhler Supports BOE Member Runner’s Fuel Tax Limitation Effort
National Tax-Limitation Committee President Lew Uhler offered his support to California Board of Equalization member George Runner in his effort to limit fuel taxes Californians pay at the pump to the first $4.00 per gallon.
Uhler stated “Without
limits, government always tries to take more and more of our money. It’s time we said ‘Enough is enough.’ The double tax on gasoline – geared to price changes – creates a perverse windfall for the government big spenders precisely when rising gas prices hurt consumers most. Capping the gas tax will help California taxpayers keep more of their hard-earned dollars where they belong-in their own pockets.”

- NATIONAL TAX-LIMITATION COMMITTEE (NTLC) PRESIDENT LEW UHLER ENDORSES DAVID LARSEN FOR CONGRESS
Roseville, CA (PRBuzz.com) March 14, 2012 — Respected taxpayer champion Lew Uhler, President of the National Tax Limitation Committee, has announced his endorsement of successful small businessman and Right Direction Organization Chairman, David Larsen, for congress.
On learning of the Uhler endorsement, David Larsen commented, “I am honored to have earned the endorsement of Lew Uhler. Lew has been a steadfast champion for the taxpayer as a tireless advocate for smaller government and low taxes. Lew and I agree, big government’s big spending is robbing the taxpayer of money that is best left in the private sector, not in the government. As I campaign throughout the district, voters are saying how important it is that we cut government spending and change the direction of our country; and to that I am duly committed.”
Announcing his support, National Tax Limitation Committee President, Lew Uhler said, “David’s principles, core convictions and his commitment to changing the direction of America through the elimination of wasteful, duplicative and failing big government programs, stifling regulations and a crushing tax burden that inhibits economic growth and private-sector job creation, distinguishes him from a majority of those presently serving in Congress.”
