INTEXT CITATION IS IMPORTANT PLEASE DO IT
Explain what it means that the tax system in Texas is “regressive” compared to other states. Use and cite at least one solid academic source.
Explain how Texas compares to other states in terms of government spending. Focus on comparisons of per capita government spending and spending priorities. Use and cite at least one solid academic source.
Make an evidence-based argument explaining whether you think other states should adopt a fiscal policy more like that of Texas, or whether Texas should adopt a fiscal policy more like that in other states. Use and cite evidence from at least one solid academic source to make your case. I am not looking for statements of opinion or explanations or justifications of your opinion about policy, but am looking for evidence-based argumentation using evidence in the form of things like statistics, research studies, case studies, expert analysis and the like from solid sources to support your position.
