I was always taught that “to whom much is given, much is required” but here in Oklahoma (“America’s Bible Belt”) this time honored principle is turned on its head as the more you have the LESS taxes you pay and the less you have the MORE taxes you pay. In other words, it appears the official tax policy of Oklahoma is to help the rich get richer and the poor get poorer!
This is just another example of the need for the People to demand policies from our state elected leaders that are just, fair, and promotes propersity and opportunity for all. This is what we do at Oklahoma Policy Institute and Together Oklahoma and invite you to join us as we work to make Oklahoma a better place!
