Political parties disagree on long-term effects of Missouri’s tax cut veto

Democrats say Gov. Jay Nixon’s successful crusade against the $700 million tax cut gave their party a solid victory, providing a template for resisting tax cut fever in other Republican-led states. Republicans say that the failure to override Nixon’s tax cut veto was the result of a unique set of circumstances and that the hurdles will be easily overcome next year when lawmakers reconvene and take up a new bill.
