Rick Perry and the Largest Tax Hike In Texas

In Rick Perry’s August 13 presidential announcement speech in South Carolina the Texas Governor stated:

.…we have led Texas based on some just really pretty simple guiding principles. One is don’t spend all of the money. Two is keeping the taxes low and under control. Three is you have your regulatory climate fair and predictable.

Later in his speech he claimed:

I’ve cut taxes. I have delivered historic property tax reductions. I was the first governor since World War II to cut general revenue spending in our state budget.

But Perry’s record on taxes reveals something entirely different. Especially for Texas businesses, where things are far from fair and predictable.
