Study Shows Florida Taxpayers Will Cough Up Billions If Gillum Elected Governor

Linkedin Share

Democrat Florida Governor candidate Andrew Gillum wants to pay teachers a minimum salary of $50,000 and raise the minimum wage from $8.25 to $15.

He also intends to make college, essentially, free.

A new study shows taxes in Florida would spike to the tune of billions of dollars if Gillum’s policies are implemented – as one could expect.

From Free Beacon:

Progressive Democrat Andrew Gillum’s tax plan proposals “would adversely impact the business climate of the state” if he is elected governor, costing Florida 155,000 jobs and $28.2 billion in economic loses per year, according to the James Madison Institute (JMI), a Tallahassee-based conservative think-tank.

Conversely, JMI maintains, conservative Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis’ tax plan proposals, which include eliminating the state’s Business Rental Tax, would “lead to the creation of 215,000 jobs annually and $26.6 billion in annual economic output.”

[…]

“Our analysis is it would require $2.6 billion” to accomplish the things Gillum wants to do, he said. “The $1 billion wouldn’t even cover” paying teachers a base $50,000 salary.

Gillum recently stated that police officers are going “too far” if they pull out a gun, baton, or taser in the line of duty.

“At the time that a law enforcement official has to go to a weapon, to a gun, to a baton, to a taser, then they have already have to go too far by their very presence,” he continued. “By the very trust that they inspire in community and in society, they are supposed to be able to bring most situations to heel.”

WATCH:

Gillum’s brother is under investigation for potential voter fraud.

Less than a year before gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum publicly denounced President Donald Trump’s efforts to investigate the threat of voter fraud, Gillum’s brother, Marcus Gillum, voted in the 2016 general election in Tallahassee, Florida while a resident of Chicago, Illinois.

Gillum has been linked to a group that teaches kids to glorify a terror group, which has been designated by the State Dept. as a foreign terrorist organization.

From Breitbart:

Dream Defenders, a radical organization closely associated with Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum, compiled an education tool for U.S. teachers that glorifies the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a deadly terrorist organization.

None of these reports look good for Gillum, but how will Floridians respond in November?
