Governor Abbot’s actions are hurting Americans. His idiocy has increased inflation. He is a political hack.
The Republicans want to increase taxes now. The Republicans offered Florida senator Rick Scott’s “11-Point Plan to Rescue America.” The Republican plan imposes new taxes on 57% of Americans. The other stupid idea is to sunset all legislation after five years, including Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.
The nonprofit, nonpartisan Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy estimates that Scott’s tax policy would increase taxes on the nation’s poorest 40% by more than $1000 on average. Money they do not have.
The states hit hardest are in the poor South: South Carolina, Mississippi, West Virginia, Arkansas, Louisiana, Alabama, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Georgia, New Mexico, and Florida.
