Below is how Mississippi ranks in areas of importance, such as healthcare, education, economy, etc. Regardless of their sucky rankings in everything that matters, Mississippi’s Governor Tate Reeves wants to eliminate the state income tax BUT wants the legislature to pony up $3 million dollars to fund Trump’s ‘Patriotic Education’ executive order.
Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves (R) called for spending $3 million on a “Patriotic Education Fund” in his budget proposal released Monday.
The money under the program would go toward schools that combat what Reeves called “revisionist history” that he said is “poisoning a generation.”
“Capitalism, democracy, and other uniquely American values have been the victims of a targeted campaign from foreign and domestic influence—aiming to destroy the pillars of our society. The United States is the greatest country in the history of the world. No other nation has done more for its citizens or to advance freedom and prosperity across the globe. We need to combat the dramatic shift in education,” Reeves wrote in his proposal.The Hill:
“Let’s eliminate the income tax, which is one huge speed bump to long-term economic growth and recovery for Mississippi,” Reeves said.
Legislators often ignore budget ideas from any governor, and Reeves could face bigger challenges than usual because of uncertainty caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
The individual income tax is one of the largest sources of Mississippi tax collections.Clarion Ledger:
