Running the numbers on red state vs. blue state tax policiesby George Bennett | May 1st, 2013
When Texas Gov. Rick Perry visited West Palm Beach last month, he and Florida Gov. Rick Scott touted low state taxes as a key to economic growth.
Perry said he wanted to “drive a conversation in this country about Red State vs. Blue State policies.”
Palm Beach Post business writer Jeff Ostrowski drives the conversation some more today with a look at job growth, unemployment and other indicators in four low-tax states — Texas, Florida, Nevada and Washington — and three high-tax states — New York, New Jersey and California.
