I like the way this guy thinks.
Gov. Mitch Daniels thinks Illinois’ proposed 75 percent hike in its corporate and personal income tax rates will be great — for Indiana.
In an exclusive interview Friday with The Times, the Republican governor said he looks forward to welcoming to the Hoosier State any Illinois business or resident that wants to pay less in taxes.
“We already had an edge on Illinois in terms of the cost of doing business, and this is going to make it significantly wider,” Daniels said.
He gets it.
Unfortunately, the voters in Massachusetts had another moment of clarity in November, when they voted to kill the 6.25% booze tax. I’m sure they’ll more than make up for it, though, with Gov. Patrick just having been sworn in for a second four-year term.
