Trump PAC Caught Peddling More Debunked Talking Points in Ron 'DeSalesTax' Ad

Sarah Arnold  |  May 19, 2023  |  3:00 PM

Former President Trump's super PAC launched a new ad aimed at Gov. Ron DeSantis's (R-Fla) taxes.

However, the problem? The same attack was launched by Adam Putnam in 2018, and even left-leaning Politifact debunked it. 

The ad, titled "Old DeSantis," was launched by Make America Great Again Inc., points out DeSantis's past of supporting sales taxes and claims that, if elected president, he will "make you pay more."

"Ron 'DeSalesTax' had a plan ... to make you pay more. With a sales tax here and a sales tax there, here a tax, there a tax, everywhere a sales tax," the ad says, showing photos of meat, eggs, and machinery.

Referring to the Fair Tax Act, the ad claims the governor supported a 23 percent national sales tax where middle-class Americans pay more— which DeSantis co-sponsored and has come back to haunt him by his opponents when he ran for governor in 2018.

However, the state's favorable tax climate has encouraged many people to move to Florida, including Trump.  .  .
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

When your candidate is out of ideas, attacks are all you got.
For those who can, get back to the land. Homesteading is a revolutionary act of resistance.
