I pass this on, f y i. There is no question that this tax cut would be
devastating to social services in Missouri.
Wealthy Missourian Rex Sinquefield has donated $2.5 million to fund the
television ads urging this state income tax cut, which we as a state cannot
afford. Our educational system is underfunded, our counties and cities are
underfunded, and our Medicaid system is underfunded. Please let our state
legislators and governor know that we do not support this decrease in state
income tax that benefits only the wealthy.
That's why I signed a petition to The Missouri State House, The Missouri
Senate, and Governor Jay Nixon, which says:
"We, the undersigned citizen voters of Missouri, urge you to vote against
overriding Governor Nixon's veto of the state income tax cut. We need
money to fully fund education in our state and to expand Medicaid benefits
Missouri citizens. The wealthy (who would benefit from this tax cut)
need the help."
