How is significantly raising taxes on Orange and Osceola county residents winning? Some of you need to take off the political blinders and understand that this war against Disney is one of the dumbest things DeSantis could do. There’s no reason at all a Florida resident should ever want Disney to fail considering how much revenue the company brings into the state.
Yeah, the chances are slim and none those taxes get passed on to voters, it is just a lefty talking point.

It transitions from Disney’s budget to the counties budget. How else will the county pay for everything?

sooooo you really dont want companies to stay out of politics
A company advocating for what they feel is best for them with their elected representatives is what most Americans do. That is not the same as calling half of your clientele racist homophobes. There is also a certain degree of class that should be shown by every American and company and unfortunately Disney has not shown it in this case.

so you are going the “corporations are people” route.

Just admit that you REALLY do not wish companies to stay out of politics like you claimed in the quote from you that i made my original reply to.
