Americans are suffering the worst economy in over 40 years.
Prices on everything from gas to food are through the roof, and shortages are starting to hit.
But Florida residents are seeing green after what Ron DeSantis just did for them.
As Bidenflation began to hit the nation, a few states got ahead of it early.
Florida, under the steady, pro-free market hand of Governor Ron DeSantis, was one such state.
Rather than panic and scramble to impose big government, socialist controls on the free market, DeSantis opened up the market more.
And Floridians have benefited greatly.
Now DeSantis has gone even further.
Realizing that the best way to combat inflationary policies of the feds is to cut taxes, he recently signed a tax break package, which includes a series of sales-tax “holidays” on such things as school clothes, hurricane supplies, and tools.
It also includes a suspension of the state gas tax.
The legislation signed by DeSantis will, along with continuing the traditional tax-holiday periods before the school year and as hurricane season starts, eliminate taxes during all or part of the 2022-2023 fiscal year on a number of items.
Some of the items included are baby clothes, diapers, children’s books, “Energy Star” appliances, impact-resistant doors and windows, new mobile homes, and admissions to Formula One Grand Prix races and the Daytona 500.
DeSantis highlighted the tax breaks for diapers and baby clothes during a bill signing ceremony at Sam’s Club in Ocala.
The ceremony included a stack of Huggies diapers and several families.
DeSantis and his wife Casey have a 2-year-old child.
Governor DeSantis said, “The tax relief you’re going to see are going to be breaks for really critical needs, like gas, diapers, disaster supplies, tools for skilled trades, recreational activities, you name it. And, so, families are going to be able to save for things that really matter for them.”
“You’ve got to do the diapers, there is no way around that,” DeSantis said.
Florida’s First Lady chimed in, saying, “We have one child in diapers now. But 2 ½ years ago, we had 2 ½ kids in diapers.”
The tax breaks for baby items comes at a time when Biden’s policies have led to a shortage in baby formula leaving many parents struggling to feed their children.
While Joe Biden stumbles and fumbles around letting children starve, expect DeSantis to take action.
