John Romano: Florida — a state with a Walmart sensibility
Tampa Bay Times' columnist John Romano looks at the striking similarities between the country's third-largest state and its biggest retailer:
Turns out, the similarities have been staring us in the face for years.
Price cuts = tax cuts.
Uninsured employees = uninsured residents.
No-frills merchandise = no-frills infrastructure.
Low wages = well, low wages.
Cheerful store greeter = Gov. Rick Scott.
It's obvious, isn't it? Florida is the Walmart of states.
