Two solutions | Letter

Facts about the growing gap between the super rich and the vast majority of Americans seems insurmountable (‘The widening gap between the super-rich and other Americans’ by Dr. Lawrence Wittner, Bothell-Kenmore Reporter, Nov. 7).

But there are solutions. One is increasing the power of the child tax credit and the earned income tax credit, which already provide ladders out of poverty for millions of Americans. The increase to these two tax credits will end the sad situation where now income tax rules actually drive 5 million Americans INTO poverty.

Our calls, letters, and visits to those who represent us in Congress can help make this and other solutions begin to narrow the wealth gap.

Together we can make this happen: use your voice!
