The Truth About Mike Beebe's Leadership...

We all knew that Mike Beebe would say anything to get elected, but we didn't know he would start his flip-flopping and fence-strattling before he even took the office. Here on Mike Beebe's Campaign Website, he says:

"As examples of his fiscal plan, Beebe talked about his proposals to completely phase out the grocery tax and the tax on utilities for manufacturers. Beebe said he would completely phase out both taxes over time, matching the rate of increased revenue from job growth."

But now, Mike Beebe is questioning whether he will actually fulfill this campaign pledge. In this article Mike Beebe has much to say on just how hard it must be to do what you say you are going to do:

"Gov.-elect Mike Beebe said Thursday removing the state sales tax from groceries could be a tough sell in the upcoming legislative session."

"It sounds good on the front end, but you can't believe the number of people who are opposed to providing tax relief on the most ... regressive tax that we have," he [Beebe] said. "That opposition exists."

"Beebe declined later to give the names of groups opposed to removing the sales tax from groceries." His friends the lobbyists maybe?

The Truth is we all knew what we were getting when we elected Mike Beebe. He says on thing and then does another. We shouldn't be surprised of this latest move by old "Both Ways Beebe"
