Texas Voters Permanently BAN State Income Taxes From Even Being Proposed With Lopsided Vote

Published

on

On Tuesday, November 6, 2019, Texans voted to ban a state income tax.

Supporters of Proposition 4 declared victory right after polls closed. 74 percent of voters supported this proposition.

State Representative Jeff Leach and State Senator Pat Fallon authored Prop 4 which eliminated the possibility of Texas implementing an income tax unless the state amends its Constitution again.

This proposal was criticized by groups such as the left-leaning group Center for Public Policy Priorities, which sent out two mailers to thousands of households in Texas and ran digital ads in “targeted areas of the state”, according to a spokesman from the CPPP.

Governor Greg Abbott praised the victorious vote in a statement he made on Tuesday evening.

“Today’s passage of prop 4 is a victory for taxpayers across the Lone Star State,” he declared. “I am grateful to Representative Jeff Leach for his bold leadership on this issue, and for the overwhelming majority of Texans who voted to ensure that our great state will always be free of a state income tax. This ban on such a disastrous tax will keep our economy prosperous, protect taxpayers, and ensure that Texas remains the best state to live, work, and raise a family.”

Any change to the Texas Constitution must be approved by a majority of voters. For a proposed amendment to get on the ballot, two-thirds of both chambers of the Texas State Legislature must support this measure.

Despite a disappointing 2019 legislative session, this vote is good news for Texas conservative activists.

Texas has long built a reputation for having no income tax, which has allowed it to attract business and individuals fleeing high tax states.

By securing a vote on Prop 4, it will make it much harder for the Left to instantly implement an income tax, should they come into power. Given the changing demographics of Texas, this could be a possibility in the near future.

Joe Biden Nominates Liberal Activist Neera Tanden as Director of Office of Management and Budget; “Zero Chance of Being Confirmed”

Tanden is a controversial Democrat.

Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced his nomination of Center for American Progress President and controversial Democrat Neera Tanden as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Biden is yet to be certified as the rightful president-elect pending the outcome of litigation challenging the results in swing states, but this hasn’t prevented him from making personnel decisions.

Tanden, who is somewhat known as a Twitter personality, is a controversial figure in Democratic and progressive circles. She regularly used her position of influence in the Democratic establishment to attack Bernie Sanders during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns,

Tanden also became a target of ire for an incident in which she revealed the identity of an individual who was allegedly sexually harassed at the Center for American Progress.

However, it appears that Tanden’s confirmation as the Director of OMB, is doubtful. Drew Brandewie, a staffer of veteran Republican Senator John Cornyn, described the establishment liberal figure as having “zero chance of being confirmed” in a Sunday tweet.

Liberals went ballistic at the notion Tanden wouldn’t be approved by a Republican Senate majority after spending her career maligning the figures whose votes she would require.

Tanden was an essential figure in pioneering the ‘resistance’ branding of establishment Democrats during Trump’s first term.

Tanden appears to have deleted more than a thousand tweets on her personal Twitter account over the weekend, possibly attempting to clean any mines that could arise in potential Senate confirmation hearings.
