Dear Servants of the People,
Why are we so openly and callously kowtowing to the rich folks of this state with an income tax ban bill?!
Are we not already ashamed and embarrassed enough being one of the poorest, least educated, unhealthiest, most obese, most polluted, and one of the most crime-infested states?
Who are we kidding? Tennessee ranks at or near the bottom in infant mortality. This fact alone should inspire us to do something positive for our state.
Permanently relieving the top 5% of income earners of their responsibility for shared sacrifice (as per taxes) is grossly unethical and immoral.
Why did we send you all to the Capitol? To give more relief to the richest among us when so many in our state are suffering?
How many of you would personally benefit from such a ban?!
How about growing the middle class, not growing the poor with more ideologically-driven, regressive tax policies?
STOP THE INCOME TAX BAN BILL now!!!
INSTITUTE A PROGRESSIVE INCOME TAX now!!!
Fairness in taxation is the way to prosperity, not huge tax relief for the wealthy.
