Cutting Taxes to Save the Deficit!

Florida Senate

Yet another gem by Howard Troxler.

Florida is running $3.6 billion short for the coming year’s budget, according to the latest estimate. The final number could be more.

And yet every indication from Dean Cannon, the new speaker of our state House …

And Mike Haridopolos, the new president of our state Senate …

And Rick Scott, our new governor …

Every indication is that they intend to meet this shortfall largely by cutting spending.

What they intend to cut and what it means for all of us Floridians, even those of us who maybe like our pensions and public schools and still largely un-privatized – and therefore substantially less corrupt – prison system.
