Tax Policy is Hunger Issue

October 25, 2017

Summary

Scripture indicates that government has a role to play in the protection and development of people. As Congress debates tax reform legislation, Bread for the World urges lawmakers to:

  1. Increase equity and fairness in the tax code. 
  2. Maintain and strengthen tax credits for low-income workers. 
  3. Block efforts to finance tax cuts for high-income people by cutting programs that help low-income people. 
  4. Encourage work and allow new markets to flourish. 

We urge our nation’s leaders to enact tax policies that do not harm, but rather expand opportunity for people who are struggling with hunger and poverty.
