New Ohio coaltiion wants tax hikes on the rich

Published: Fri, November 30, 2012 @ 2:10 p.m.

COLUMBUS — A coalition of liberal groups is planning a series of public events across the state, with hopes of convincing Ohio’s Republican congressional delegation to support tax hikes on the country’s wealthiest residents.

The Ohio Action Coalition is fearful the GOP will block a deal to avoid the looming federal fiscal cliff that would involve tax increases for those who earn more than $250,000 a year.

Instead, the group wants Congress to increase tax rates on the richest 2 percent of residents while extending tax cuts instituted during former President George W. Bush’s term for everyone else.

“Our goal in the campaign is to ensure that tax fairness is a starting point for any deficit-reduction deal struck between Congress and President Obama to avoid the so-called ‘fiscal cliff,’” said Joanne Pickrell, director of the new coalition.

Finally some common sense in making everyone pay their fair share.

"pay their fair share."

Funny how that term has been abused recently. Let's all admit that it means whatever the speaker feels it means.

I would go along with raising the taxes on the rich if they cut welfare too. We are all becoming enablers by raising welfare pay rates to people who are to lazy to get out of bed and get a job. If you axe me that's is only fair.

Thanks to Republican gerrymandering, you're correct.
