Travis H. Brown and How Money Walks at the Republican National Convention 2016 in Cleveland, Ohio
Major key states in the electoral college process have come forth to support a Trump/Pence nomination. Taking a closer look at the big delegations, it is interesting to examine the records of these states. Obama’s home state of Illinois is often used as the poster child of how not to run a state. Illinois still remains a mess after raising personal corporate income taxes and not balancing their budget on unfunded pension liabilities. Illinois’ debt has grown so quickly in recent years that the state now has some of the highest debt levels in the nation. Higher taxes have only continued to hurt the state’s spending problem. The state’s tax base continues to crumble as businesses move to states with more opportunities… just another example of how and why money walks.
Senator Marco Rubio recently announced that he will run for re-election for a second term in Florida, a state that has a hundred billion dollars of wealth transferring in at about $10,000/min net of all transfers. The nonpartisan Tax Foundation’s 2015 State Business Tax Climate Index rates Florida as the fifth best in the nation for business friendliness.
Then there’s the state of New York. They need a change in our national economy and want someone like Trump to help. And then there’s Tennessee, who has been showing us what strength in economy is all about. They have been boosting jobs and capital investments through company relocations and expansions. Economic growth in Tennessee has surged, and will continue to grow with the help of someone like Donald Trump.
