According to religious groups in California – raising taxes on the rich is the moral thing to do

4 posts / 0 new

Two hundred religious leaders in California have endorsed Democratic Governor Jerry Brown’s proposal to raise taxes on people in the state with incomes above $250,000 rather than make painful cuts to schools and education programs.

According to polls in the state – 60% of Californians also agree with raising taxes on the rich in their state – and voters will likely have final say on the issue – as the proposal is expected to qualify for the state ballot. Somewhere Grover Norquist is freaking out.

Religious leaders didn't formulate policy, if you read the post it says "Jerry Brown's proposal".
