Your view: Graduated income tax is way to go

The elimination of the corporate Capital Stock and Franchise Tax is the principal cause of Pennsylvania’s current budget deficit.

Borrowing against future revenue, increasing taxes on utility bills and cutting medical benefits for the poor is not a longterm solution to the state’s financial condition.

The adoption of a flexible graduated income tax for school districts and for all levels of government, based on the total income (the ability to pay) of all taxpayers and corportations is the ultimate solution for abolishing unfair taxes and balancing the budget.
