Tax Fairness Act? A family of four making $30,000 pays $1,000 more, and a family of four making $500,000 pays $23,000 less – an outcome of a proposal touted by Phil Berger and his fellow Republican senators as the “Tax Fairness Act” (“Senate GOP outlines tax plan,” May 8).
Really, what could be fairer? Income disparity, highest in history, clearly needs to be increased, and the poor need to understand that having less money will not be to their detriment. In fact, it will provide them with an incentive to do better or, at the very least, to eat less and thus partially avoid the coming tax “reform.”
