According to Cato his tax cuts weren't really cuts. http://www.cato.org/pub_display.php?pub_id=8838

He raised taxes on everything from groceries to nursing home beds. Huckabee answers these complaints by pointing out that he "cut taxes 94 times" while governor. True. But most of those tax cuts were tiny, like exempting residential lawn care from the sales tax. Some cuts reduced overall state revenues by as little as $15,000. On net, Huckabee increased state taxes by more than $500 million. In fact, Huckabee increased taxes in the state by more than Bill Clinton did.
