Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has been subtly making himself out to be not just a rising Republican star, but a complete and utterly opposite politician from those on the other side of the aisle.
For every failure or misstep that the Biden administration makes, DeSantis has an answer.
As the federal government pushed overreaching COVID mask and vaccine mandates, DeSantis refused, even making it illegal for companies operating in the Sunshine State to install their own requirements.
When the White House refused to work on the border situation, DeSantis paid to fly migrants to Martha’s Vineyard in an act of advocacy that got the whole nation talking about the crisis at the border.
And as Biden’s team continues to bungle the economy, Governor Ron’s got a new plan to help keep Floridians from falling behind.
Seven weeks before he squares off against Democrat Charlie Crist in November’s election, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis boasted of a series of tax breaks he is proposing to help families while knocking inflation he blamed on Crist’s party.
The governor noted that the state granted $1.2 billion in tax relief for the current year with measures like a tax holiday on baby-related purchases like diapers and wipes. The plan is to continue this and do more in the coming year.Advertisement - story continues below
“What we’re going to do next year is we’re going to make that permanent, so that baby items, cribs, strollers, no tax on that,” DeSantis said at an Education Freedom event in Boca Raton, Florida.
Inflationary indexes have shown America to be suffering from some of the most pronounced economic trouble in forty years or more, all while the White House’s response remains timid and extraordinarily lackadaisical.
