Charlie Crist finalist for Club for Growth’s ‘Comrade of the Month’

in Statewide by
Charlie Crist is a finalist for this month’s Comrade of the Month by the Club for Growth, which writes: “Crist signed a no-tax pledge when he was running for governor of Florida a few years ago. Now, as the state’s top elected official, he has proceeded to break that very pledge by signing a tax hike into law last week as part of the state budget. But Crist didn’t stop there. Earlier this week, he signed another tax hike…this time a 20% tax increase on businesses. Crist sure is some “Republican.”
