  •  Actually it is a big problem too (8+ / 0-)

    IMHO, the lack of a personal income tax is the biggest impediment to efficiently and equitably providing public services in Florida.

    •  I absolutely agree, gulfgal! (6+ / 0-)

      Wasn't saying that this "no income tax" was a good lure, just that it was a lure, until folks get down here for a while and see what it means.

      You can make it sound good, but then these folks move down here and find out what it means in terms of public schools, services and roads, and they're not quite so happy anymore...

      More hugggggs!
