Rex Sinquefield was speaking to a group at the conservative Heritage Foundation when he said, "Missouri has an idiot for a governor."
Sinquefield and others were discussing the study into state income taxes in all 50 states. The study makes the case for lower income taxes increasing economic development. SInquefield strongly disagreed with nixon's decision on a recent income tax that passed the state legislature.
<"that idiot vetoed an income tax cut, the 1 thing that is known to work to help establish growth, he vetoes it."
The Missouri legislature voted to override Nixon's veto. Nixon's office says it has no comment on sinquefield's remarks.
