Frankfort, Ky. (November 2, 2022) – With 40-year high inflation brought about by the Biden-Beshear Democrat agenda, a national group has given Governor Beshear a “D” for fiscal policy.
“Despite Andy Beshear’s refrains about the economy being ‘on-fire,’ a national group just gave him a nearly failing grade for fiscal policy and his opposition to income tax cuts for Kentuckians,” Republican Party of Kentucky spokesman Sean Southard said. “Andy could attend one thousand ribbon cuttings, but it won’t change the fact that he is just like every other national Democrat: a tax and spend liberal who has stood by Joe Biden and his agenda every step of the way.”
The report from the Cato Institute noted that Kentucky Republicans enacted a significant tax cut over Beshear’s objections earlier this year. The tax cut received national praise in April with the Wall Street Journal editorial board writing Beshear’s veto “show[ed] he’s more concerned with preserving spending.”
The Cato Institute ranked Beshear 37th of the 46 governors graded, putting him in the bottom 10 for the nation.
