ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A candidate for governor says hard workers are overtaxed and the income tax system needs to go.

Insurance Commissioner John Oxendine held a Fair Tax Town Hall meeting at the Albany Airport this afternoon. He wants to get rid of the corporate and personal income taxes as well as the state income tax.

"We need to say an income tax is fundamentally wrong because you are taxing people for being productive and we need to abolish the income tax nationally and in Georgia," Oxendine said.

"I think we need a fairer tax system that actually puts a control on government and its spending," said Fair Tax Supporter Mike Sabot.

If Oxendine is elected governor, he'll introduce the new revenue code to lawmakers in January.
