Missouri Lawmakers Override Governorís Veto, Choose Economic Growth
American Legislator ^ | 5-7-14 | Ben Wilterdink

Yesterday, the Missouri House of Representatives voted to override the veto of Governor Jay Nixon and enact broad based tax cuts for the citizens of Missouri for the first time in almost 100 years. The Missouri House joins the Missouri Senate, which voted to override Governor Nixon’s veto Monday. The tax cut package is similar to one which passed the legislature last year and was also vetoed by Governor Nixon. The previous veto was sustained. Ironically, Governor Nixon vetoed broad tax cuts (now twice) for all Missourians who pay income taxes even though he called a special session last year to give targeted tax breaks to a single company in an effort to get the company to relocate to Missouri. But, with the recent actions of the legislature, all Missourians will be keeping more of their hard-earned money over the next few years.

Wow, Missouri shifting to the right on all kinds of issues. With the urban zones of the two big cities losing population, MO is showing us how it’s done.

How did a first-time pol like Dave Spence win the GOP nomination, only to lose to Jay Nixon? Even after he placed on his website the fiction that he had an economics degree, even the degree was in home economics?

MO House decided to drop impeachment proceedings. “Serious but not willful” is what I heard on radio.
