Oklahoma Conservative Underwhelmed with Tax Cut

Saturday on News9, Patrick McGuigan expressed disappointment (not uncommon among conservatives I've spoken to) with the "anemic" tax cut passed this year by Oklahoma's policymakers. McGuigan, Billie Rodely, and Peter J. Rudy also discussed the matter on their weekly podcast. Let's just hope this tiny tax cut doesn't become no tax cut.

UPDATE: As my colleague Michael Carnuccio put it after the politicians gobbled up another quarter-billion dollars in growth revenue, "For the third budget cycle in a row, Republican control of state government has produced increased government spending, no immediate tax cuts for families, and continued earmarks for pet projects."
