Andrew Gillum’s Socialist & Destructive Agenda

Posted by FactReal on November 3, 2018

FLORIDA WILL NO LONGER BE ONE OF THE FREEST STATES IN THE UNION IF GILLUM BECOMES GOVERNOR
“Andrew Gillum Would Be a Disaster as Florida Governor,” is a great article published by NRO[1] warning all Floridians of democrat Andrew Gillum who is running for Governor of Florida in the 2018 election.

GILLUM’S AGENDA COMES STRAIGHT FROM THE SOCIALIST BERNIE SANDERS’ PLAYBOOK:
[Gillum will raise sales tax to 39%, or impose new state income tax of 37%. Raise corporate tax rate to 11%. A loss of 266,543 jobs and $28.2 billion each year.]

Summary of the article with some of our comments in brackets.
Abolish ICE
[Just like his Friends at the Socialist, Anti-Israel & Anti-Cop Group Called DREAM DEFENDERS]
[Democrats want more voters. That’s why they love the migrant invasion – even if that destroys us.]
Raise the minimum wage to $15
[Are you ready for $25+ hamburgers at McDonald’s, high job losses? Read: FL Election: Gillum vs DeSantis]
Pass single-payer health care
[Gillum’s Plan’Medicare For All’ = High Taxes, High Costs, Obamacare was a failure.]
Increase taxes across the board
[Means less money in our pockets. History: Tax Increases Slowed Economic Growth]
Gillum’s agenda — a $15 minimum wage, a steep corporate-tax hike — would be enough to dent the state’s thriving economy.

Opposes gun rights
[Just like his Friends at the Socialist, Anti-Israel & Anti-Cop Group Called DREAM DEFENDERS]
[Criminals will still have guns. How will law-abiding citizens defend themselves?]
Supports a ban on “assault weapons” and measures to crack down on private gun sales.
[Read: The Assault Weapon Myth]
Gillum is no friend of due process, having endorsed proposals to restrict the Second Amendment rights of people who have not been convicted of crimes.
♦ He has recommended that localities pass gun restrictions that flout state law.
♦ On health care, Gillum wants increased government involvement at the federal and state levels. [Gillum’s Plan’Medicare For All’ = High Taxes, High Costs]
♦ He supports Sanders’s outlandish “Medicare for all” plan and says he would expand Medicaid in Florida. [Gillum’s Plan’Medicare For All’ = High Taxes, High Costs]
♦ He has floated other ideas to increase state spending on health care.
Extremely high taxes will not be enough: Florida would need to adopt a New York–style tax regime to finance the medical costs.
[Gillum to raise sales tax to 39%, or impose new state income tax of 37%. Raise corporate tax rate to 11%. A loss of 266,543 jobs and $28.2 billion each year.]


GILLUM = ANNUAL ECONOMIC LOSSES FOR FLORIDA:

A study by the think tank James Madison Institute (JMI) found that Gillum’s agenda of high-taxes and government-expansion would have a negative impact on Florida:[2]

♦ Gillum will abandon the current low tax and pro-growth policy-making that have put Florida in a positive trajectory so far.
♦ Increase corporate tax rate to 11%.
♦ Increase sales tax to 39%.
♦ Or impose a state income tax of 37%.
♦ Florida would lose 155,188 direct jobs plus 111,355 indirect jobs; a total impact of 266,543 job lost annually.
♦ Household Income (worker income) for Floridians would lose $11.5 billion each year.
♦ Total economic impact would be negative: that is a loss of $28.2 billion annually.

GILLUM’S SOCIALIST AGENDA WAS TRIED IN VENEZUELA & OTHER COUNTRIES AND IT FAILED:
Another great article by NRO[3] reminds Americans how socialism has failed.
Socialism was tried in Venezuela and it failed:

There is a pure socialist state at work in our global economy just now. It’s Venezuela, which has embraced a high minimum wage, open borders, universal healthcare — the whole Gillum package. The results there have been predictable. The minimum wage has punished the poor and the unskilled, as also the young and the old. The lack of border controls has been no problem, now that all of the human traffic is outbound. And the medical system does in fact treat all patients equally. In Venezuela today, everybody receives inadequate medical care. Our friend PJ O’Rourke said it best: “If you think healthcare is expensive now, wait until it’s free.”

Socialism failed around the world:

[I]n Russia as Soviet Communism and in Germany as national socialism [Nazism]; in China as Maoist totalitarianism and in Cuba as Castro collectivism. Indeed, the history of the 20th century can be read as one long refutation of socialist fallacy. Mayor Gillum seems to be unaware that in all of those test kitchens, the experiment ended the same way — first in a failed economy and then in a failed state.

VENEZUELANS VOTED FOR SOCIALISM, THIS IS WHAT THEY GOT IN RETURN:
