Republican Governor Doug Ducey doesn’t get all the love that Florida’s Ron DeSantis deservedly does, but he will leave office in January after two terms with a stellar economic record. On Thursday he announced that Arizona in 2023 will have a 2.5% flat rate income tax. The lowest in the nation – other than the nine states that have no income tax at all. Because the state is well managed fiscally and is running a surplus, the flat tax is taking effect one year earlier than previously planned.
Ducey also deserves kudos for instituting the most ambitious school choice program in the nation with a $7,000 per child voucher for parents to send their kids to the school of their choice – public or private.
Imagine how prosperous the entire country would be with this agenda.
