  • Gov. Rick Scott [announced that his] state budget proposal will include $2 billion in tax cuts that should become a model for President Barack Obama.
  • he will cut the state corporate income tax by 45 percent — with plans to eliminate it entirely
  • and cut property taxes that are now directed to school spending by another $1.4 billion.
  • The school property tax cut will be offset by other spending cuts, Scott said, to “keep the school budgets the same.”
  • he will propose making state employees, teachers and law enforcement officers contribute 5 percent of their salaries to their retirement.

That’s part of Governor Rick Scott’s budget that will officially be announced on Monday.  I’m not going to say much here.  I think the category I have for this type of story is self-evident.

I will, however, include this criticism from fellow Republicans:

Both Senate President Mike Haridopolos and House Speaker Dean Cannon say it will be difficult to close a nearly $4 billion budget gap and reduce taxes.
