Have the good people of Florida lost their minds? As New Yorkers watch friends and family flee to the “Sunshine State,” seeking relief from crushing taxes that will only get worse, we have to wonder: How could Florida voters even think of changing their winning game?
Do they really want to elect a progressive governor who promises to raise taxes, bust the state budget and drive businesses to other states?
- In its annual poll, CNBC ranked Florida the 10th-best state in the country in which to do business;
- Florida was the fifth-fastest growing state in the union last year;
- Florida is among the five lowest-taxed states in the country.
- Unemployment in Florida in September was an astonishing 3.5 percent, lower than the country’s 3.7 percent;
- By contrast, New York state unemployment is 4.1 percent, and the number of government workers is rising.
Nowhere in the country do voters face a starker choice between the pro-growth agenda of President Trump and the high tax, anti-business policies of the progressive left than in Florida.
