Sunshine State News
“Price Fixing?” (excerpt)
By Nancy Smith
November 9, 2015Bob McClure, president and CEO of the James Madison Institute in Tallahassee, while not addressing the governor’s initiative directly, told Sunshine State News that over the past 20 years, Florida has become a beacon of liberty and prosperity, and for the most part, we’ve taken “a deliberate and consistent policy route to promote free markets, less government intrusion, and fewer regulatory burdens.”And the result is clear. Between 1992 and 2014, more than $127 billion in income has migrated from high tax/high regulation states to Florida. Facts don’t lie: $23.8 billion from New York, $14.8 billion from New Jersey, $10.3 billion from Illinois, and $8.6 billion from Pennsylvania lead the way,” McClure said.”We have seen firsthand that free market principles provide the best hope for Florida … to succeed, thrive and prosper.”Article:
