THE PRESCRIPTION FOR POSITIVE CHANGE IN
KY). On Tax Day 2008, Mike Cassaro commiserates with fellow taxpayers.
Cassaro is extremely displeased in how the federal government uses our tax
dollars. When excluding such non-discretionary items as Social
Security from the budget formula, national defense encompasses 59% of the
federal budget as compared to only 6% for education, training, employment and
do not want my tax dollars going to killing people in this senseless Iraq War.
If I had the choice my tax dollars would go to such human services as education,
training, and employment,” Mike Cassaro declares.
Cassaro is very displeased with the blatantly unfair Bush administration’s tax
cuts, which Mitch McConnell fully supported. Thanks to these tax cuts the
burdens for high-income households fell significantly more than for other
households. Many economic analysts believe that the Bush and McConnell tax
cuts have led to the reported widening income gap between affluent and
Cassaro, furthermore, claims that working people did not receive a tax
cut. “Working people still pay an unfair share of payroll taxes, which is
much more oppressive to them than income taxes,” declares Mike
Cassaro also declares that corporate tax welfare exists at the expense of the
American taxpayer. Data from the Urban Institute (a non-partisan economic
foundation) support his claim. Washington
raises more personal
income tax and property tax but less corporate income tax in relation to GDP
(gross domestic product) than any other developed country.
Cassaro contends that “unfair taxes and corporate welfare are not economically
just.” “Maybe George Bush and Mitch McConnell do not believe in economic
justice, but I certainly DO.”
Cassaro as your U.S. Senator would:
to repeal the Bush and McConnell tax cuts for the rich.
legislation that would raise the income threshold for paying income taxes.
legislation that would eliminate loopholes in corporate taxes.
that reduces payroll taxes for working people and small businesses providing
benefits to employees.
