Republican-v-Democrat-state-taxes

BREAKING NEWS – Washington, D.C. – WalletHub.com, a website that provides financial tools for consumers and small business owners, compared the complex and sometimes bizarre array of state and local taxes that residents face across the country. One surprising conclusion: politics matter. If you live in a state that tends to vote “Democrat” in national elections, on average, your total state and local tax bill will be more than one-third higher than someone who lives in a Republican-leaning state. Vice President Joe Biden responded to the findings by stating that “Even if the numbers are accurate, people are happier that live in democratic states, because there, politicians aren’t constantly looking for welfare fraud, or trying to get people off of state assistance and forcing them to work against their will.
