Nonpartisan Criticizes Huckabee Tax Ad

The nonpartisan criticizes this recent ad from Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee:


The ad shows a graphic asserting that Huckabee "cut taxes over 90 times" as governor. As we've noted previously, 90 tax cuts indeed were enacted under Huckabee. However, so were 21 tax increases, and they far outweighed the cuts. ... Huckabee's ad also boasts that he "balanced the budget every year" he was governor, but that's not much to crow about. Like other governors, he must balance the state budget by law.
