Changing Income Taxes

Recently, there was new bill proposed by Senator Jeff Stone of California to eliminate state income tax for the poor and middle class. Married residents making under $200,000 and individuals making under $100,000 would not have to pay any income tax. This accounts for nearly 90% of California’s population. The bill would also cause wealthy part-time residents to pay income taxes for the time they live in California.

Questions to think about:

Do you think this is a fair?

How do you think the residents of California would react if this passed?

What alternatives are there to solving income inequality?
