On 'millionaire' range, president switches tag
The Oklahoma Policy Institute, which generally opposes tax cuts and supports increased government spending, has endorsed reform, including raising the personal exemption and stretching out and indexing the tax brackets so more low-income people are taxed at a lower rate.
Those changes might not have much pro-growth benefit, but they deserve support simply to make Oklahoma's tax code less punitive for the poor. Such changes would not be necessary but for one fact: At both the state and federal level, calls to “tax the rich” inevitably lead to higher taxes for working families.
