Republican leaders want to eliminate another tax on businesses. In place of that tax, the middle class can expect to have local income taxes raised to offset the effects.
They've eliminated the inheritance tax, which will help mainly the wealthy since they're the ones who inherit the most. The income tax cut for all residents was passed, which for the average person will put less than $75 in your pocket, but the top 5 percent of Indiana's wage-earners will save more than $1,000.
The Republicans in Jasper County have given residents the second highest local income tax rate in the state, and that was before the latest state tax cuts.
This reckless Republican agenda of taxing the poor to help the rich has got to be stopped. The economy will improve with a strong middle class that spends money, not cutting taxes for the rich who invest in the stock market!
