Guess which GOP states have sky-high income tax rates



You would think that states that have been governed by Republicans for years would have lower income tax rates than Democratic states. But that's not always the case.

Take Wisconsin, which has been governed by Scott Walker and a Republican legislature for years. Do you know what the top income tax rate is? 7.75%. In the nearby People's Republic of Illinois, the top rate is only 3.75%. Scott Walker has enacted Right to Work laws and other positive legislation, but why has he left the tax rates so high? Wisconsin is in the news today because a Republican state senate race in a heavily Republican district was lost to a Democrat. Voters need reasons to come out for Republicans.

South Carolina's top rate is 7%. The Republicans have controlled the legislature there for years. And do you know who was governor, until recently? Nikki Haley. Why didn't she do anything about the high tax rate there?

Arkansas's top tax rate is 6.9%. Why hasn't Asa Hutchinson or the Republican legislature lowered taxes there?

Louisiana, which for years was governed by Republicans and Bobby Jindal, has a top rate of 6%.

Iowa has a huge 8.98% top income tax rate. Why does a rural farm state have such a high tax rate? What is it that requires so much subsidizing? Why didn't Terry Branstad do anything to lower a New York-like top tax rate?

Nebraska's top tax rate, at 6.84%, isn't very good either. Can't we expect more by states which have been ruled by Republicans for years?

And why does Idado, which almost never elects Democrats, have a top rate of 7.4%? Why does the Idaho state government need so much money?

Other Republican states are not great either, with top rates of 5%-6% in places like Tennessee, North Carolina, Utah, Missouri, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and Oklahoma.

There's something very odd about Republican states with high income tax states, especially Republican states without big urban populations in need of welfare. When Republicans start to lose elections, and wonder why voters have soured on them, perhaps they can figure out why.

Would the Census be more sensitive to "Immigrants" if conducted by ICE?


There is a great deal of worry in California that the state could be "undercounted" in the next census if official go ahead with a proposal to ask people on the census if they are US citizens. The theory is that if illegal aliens see the question they will run away into the night screaming with terror and not be counted for purposes of the Census. If illegals are undercounted then places where they live--like California--will be deemed to have a smaller population and be allocated fewer Congressmen (or Congresswomen or Congressthems or Congressits) in Congress.
