    Texas’ sales tax haul drops by biggest percentage in a decade, signaling budget crisis


    The coronavirus outbreak is creating a budget crisis for Texas of historic proportions,

    as sales tax collections for the lock-down month of April

    slumped by the biggest percentage – 13.2 –

    seen in a decade and smaller sources of revenue such

    as hotel occupancy and booze taxes racked up their steepest declines on record.

    Should be the same with FL and any big state that is financed with regressive sales taxes rather then income taxes.


    uhhh....States with income tax will take the same hit. Incomes are down with unemployment and business closures.

    I hope they are collecting data on whether these people attended protests. We need to learn whether those conditions contribute to spread.

    Yeah.
    It could also coincide with the State "opening up", so it should be easy to tease what you wish to out of the numbers as we cant control these counts properly. As far as the contact tracing, you got a lot of overlap.

    NY is not Texas.

    Again controls.

    we can do the comparison but we have to mention what might have skewed the data

    Speaking of the Hill Country, Medina's cases more than doubled in the past 24 hours. Another backlog?

    Would be difficult to separate new cases based on reopening vs protests in Texas. Better to look at a state like CA, which has been locked down pretty hard.

    This was in the link I posted above:
    " Dr. David Persse, medical director for the Houston Fire Department..... cautioned that the recent protests were unlikely to be the cause if there's a prolonged e in cases.

    "If it stays at this, this sort of same rate of increase, then I definitely won't say you can blame the protests," Persse said. "If anything, it's going to be the reopening of society and people becoming fatigued, if you will, with the precautions we've asked them to take."


    It gets old spoon feeding lazy ass talking piece of s like you. It's easier to just make fun of you and move on.

    There was always going to be a rise in infections once restrictions were lifted. The issue is how many infections the governments are willing to live with in what period of time. Since no governments are actually saying what those are we can only guess that they're fine with anything up to and maybe including full hospital capacity, maybe more. Who knows? We probably won't get to that point in many places, so everyone can keep quiet about it.

    Yah, I mean what happens if we do get to full hospital capacity in the big cities? Seems to me we're just gonna keep going full steam ahead, masks recommended but not mandatory.



    "This is a trend we’re definitely keeping an eye on,” said Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo. “If the numbers keep up in this direction, we could be headed to a place where we run out of hospital space, which obviously would be a problem.”

    COVID-19 patients have occupied hospital intensive-care units in the nine-county Houston area at higher levels the first three days in June than they did on any single day in May, according to date compiled by the Southeast Texas Regional Advisory Council, a state group that coordinates the region’s emergency response to disasters. In Harris County, hospital admissions have increased at statistically significant levels the past two weeks......"
