Income and wealth inequality between the rich and poor is the highest it has ever been since the great depression. Asking that everyone pay their fair share in taxes to provide for the public health, safety and the general welfare is reasonable.
We should oppose regressive taxation that impacts the lowest income earners, however, so-called sin taxes may be unavoidable. The highest tax should be levied on the drugs that kill the most and the least tax on drugs that have the least mortality; relying on evidence-based findings.
A Progressive Tax Policy that reduces taxes for people with less ability to pay and shift taxes to those with the most ability to pay treats taxpayers fairly. We should resist any regressive or proportional tax that impacts those with the least ability to pay.
