In his executive budget proposal, Gov. Tate Reeves called for the complete elimination of the state income tax. This has been a bad idea for the past few years when House Speaker Philip Gunn called for it, and it remains a bad idea today.

Furthermore, at a time when hospitals are failing, we have more urgent investment needs than broad tax cuts.
