Think Tank discusses voting rights, taxes in Arizona
At the national level, voting rights discussions (and the filibuster which is impeding voting rights legislation) have dominated the news.
In Arizona, the legislature sent a tax bill that dramatically cuts taxes for the wealthy.
Nathan Sproul served as the executive director for the Arizona Republican Party from 1999 to 2002. And was involved with the Christian Coalition. He is a principal at Lincoln Strategy Group.
Tom Ryan regularly sues people who need to be sued. I don’t know if he makes a living at that or not but his actions do keep a lot of public officials a bit more on the straight and narrow path. In the course of this discussion, we get Nathan’s view, as a onetime head of the Republican party in Arizona, of the direction of the party in the Trump or post-Trump era.
And, since a 2/3 majority is required to ever raise taxes, does this tax cut inevitably defund education in the state?
And what is the real purpose of the election “recount” given that two certified independent auditors have already certified the vote as legit (and it was accepted by both the Republican governor and the Republican Maricopa County Board of Supervisors?
This and more on this week’s Think Tank.
