Tax Debate Underway
Our nation is again talking about reducing taxes. We are hearing how certain proposals will affect the top 1%, billionaires, millionaires, small businesses, the middle class, and the working class. I have yet to hear any comments on how the tax plan will affect the poor - the bottom 20%, many of whom are hungry or homeless.
As the debate moves forward, I expect the churches will be evaluating proposals based on their impact on the poor. The poor cannot afford expensive lobbyists and Christians will need to help this group find a voice in the debate.
