A Gentleman Sets the Record Straight
Thurman Hart (Xpatriated Texan) tried desperately to disprove a conclusion Ken reached in his original post, State Business Tax Climate Index:
It doesn't get much simpler than this. Make your tax system fair, and your state will prosper. Complicate your tax system, failing to treat taxpayers equally and you will lag behindWhy is the idea of a fair tax system that treats all taxpayers equally so repugnant to Thurman Hart that he’s willing to call Ken’s honesty and intelligence into question?
And why does Thurman Hart ignore data, make erroneous calculations and reach conclusions not supported by any documented facts in his attempt to disprove Ken’s conclusion that a more favorable tax climate has a beneficial effect on a state’s economic competitiveness and growth?
We have our hunches, but we’d rather hear Thurman Hart’s explanation. As food for thought and for what it’s worth, Governor Corzine agrees with Ken Adams:
“I believe the business climate needs to change in the State,” Corzine said. “I do not consider business the problem, I consider it the solution.”Note: We were going to give this post a different title, but it just seemed a bit too long - You can lead a conservative to the library and more than likely he’ll thank for your help. Most conservatives can’t be made to think false and illogical things are true, even when ridiculed and maligned. An officer and gentlemen, such as Ken Adams, would never intentionally mislead anyone.
