As the Wall Street Journal reports this morning, Americans are finally getting some tax relief! Well, not all Americans–just those living in states with Republican governors. Many of those governors are attempting to eliminate their state income tax altogether.
Did you know that nine states now have no state income tax?
Democrats HATE this, and it is why they fought so hard to remove Scott Walker and other anti-union leaders from being elected to office. They know that their major source of funding is from forcing public workers to pay union dues that get siphoned off to support Democratic candidates who will vote for more union-friendly laws and regulations.

The Journal goes on to say:
Labor unions and liberal groups had hoped to discredit tax cuts on the state level by spending millions of dollars to defeat incumbent governors Sam Brownback of Kansas, Rick Scott of Florida, and Scott Walker of Wisconsin. But these tax-cutters were re-elected while voters told tax hikers such as Illinois Gov. Quinn to take a hike. “One message from the last election was that voters want lower taxes and more cost-conscious government,” says Mr. Walker.
So while our Dear Leader and his minions work to increase taxes, build up debt, control your life, and spend, spend, spend, Republican governors are getting to work rolling back the devastating economic and social effects of an over-controlling government regime.
Again from the Journal:
Many governors have come to understand that states aren’t just competing against each other for businesses and jobs. As Mr. Kasich puts it, “In Ohio we’re in a contest against Europe, Asia and the rest of the world, so we have to keep our taxes low. That has become the dominant view in statehouses this year, and it explains why the big tax-cutting activity in 2015 won’t be in Washington but in state capitals.”
Slowly, the public employees union grip over state and local governments (and the associated high taxes, bloated bureaucracies, and for-profit government) will be reduced. This can only be good for America and her economy. Now, we must work on removing this blight on our country from the federal level as well.
Americans have seen liberal policies at work for six years now, and they don’t like it.
