Las Políticas Tributarias son un Tema sobre el Hambre

October 25, 2017

Resumen

Las Escrituras indican que el gobierno tiene un papel importante que desempeñar en la protección y el desarrollo de las personas. Mientras el Congreso debate sobre la legislación de reforma tributaria, Pan para el Mundo exhorta a los legisladores a:

  1. Aumentar la equidad en el código tributario.
  2. Mantener y fortalecer los créditos fiscales para los trabajadores de bajos ingresos.
  3. Bloquear esfuerzos para financiar recortes tributarios para personas de altos ingresos mediante el recorte de programas que ayudan a las personas de bajos ingresos.
  4. Aliente el trabajo y permita que florezcan nuevos mercados.

Instamos a los líderes de nuestra nación a que promulguen políticas fiscales que no dañen, sino que amplíen las oportunidades para las personas que luchan contra el hambre y la pobreza.
