Crist Misleading On Tax Cuts

Via PolitiFact:
Crist has often touted his tax-cutting record and repeatedly said he and the Republican Legislature passed “the largest tax cut” in the state’s history. He’s made that claim in news releases, political speeches and in the first radio ad for his U.S. Senate campaign. We first put it to our Truth-O-Meter in September 2009. [. . .]In the absence of additional data, and with the knowledge that Save Our Homes has cut property tax bills for Florida residents $32 billion or more, we find no changes since we rated this in September. We can’t agree with Crist that the 2007 and 2008 changes constitute the largest tax cut in state history. We rule Crist’s statement False.
