President of the San Antonio Tea Party, Allen Tharp, sent this press release concerning San Antonio's proposed Pre-K program.

In a well-choreographed display, the San Antonio City Council last week paraded before itself numerous supporters of a proposed Pre-K 4 San Antonio sales tax hike. Among the few speaking for the average taxpayer who will bear that increased tax burden was the San Antonio Tea Party, which unequivocally opposes this tax hike.

During the hearing, the San Antonio Tea Party entered into the record well-documented case studies that prove such programs do not have long-lasting effects upon the targeted population. Study after study has shown that "Head Start"-type programs of this sort do not lower the high school drop-out rate or increase the percentage of college-bound students in the targeted population. In fact, there are no long-term positive effects past the third grade for programs of this sort.

The San Antonio Tea Party also argued that sales taxes, by their very nature, hit the working poor the hardest. Ironically, this is the very same population the City Council claims it is trying to help. Because sales taxes raise the cost of doing business, they lower the opportunity for employment across all sectors of the economy. This tax pressure will result in economic contraction, will shrink the tax base, and ultimately result in lower overall tax revenue.

Much will be said of this proposal during the days leading up to the November election, when a ballot measure will call for San Antonio voters to decide. Between now and then, the San Antonio Tea Party will work tirelessly to educate voters on the facts--the many convincing reasons this proposal is truly not in the best interest of San Antonio as a community or the children it proposes to help, and deserves to be soundly defeated.
