Concerned about tax loopholes


Right now our state budget is being held up by some legislators who want to give another tax break to the most wealthy. No, not a new tax, a new tax break. This would happen if SB5939 passes. My question is: Why is it always the people who complain most loudly about budget deficits that want to give tax breaks to the rich? These tax breaks do not help job recovery. They help rich families turn into dynasties so we can have even more division between rich and poor. If you think this is a bad idea tell your state representatives.
