Tax inequity in the United States
The Barefoot Accountant recently interviewed Susan Bysiewicz, a Connecticut Democratic primary candidate for the United States Senate in 2012, on the pocketbook issues facing middle class Americans. In part 3 of the interview, Susan Bysiewicz addresses the inequity of the tax laws in the United States today and and how the Bush tax breaks have contributed $2.6 trillion to our national debt as well as widened the gap between the richest and the poorest citizens in America.
In order to address our ever increasing national deficit and ever expanding national debt, Susan Bysiewicz proposes raising the highest marginal tax rate on the wealthiest of individuals as well as bringing home our troops from Afghanistan and Iraq, since our involvement in these countries have also added an additional $1.4 trillion to our country’s debt.
