A New Website and Video Support Expanded EITC

A new video by Prof. Robert Reich and Inequality Media, contained in a new website by the Economic Security Project, provide much of the background and justification for expanding the federal Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)to help Americans who are struggling economically (most of us). (The Economic Security Project also appears to promote a Universal Basic Income.)

Here is the video, as reported by Newsweek. The EITC is a proven method of injecting more money into a rural economy.

It is so encouraging and gratifying to have this level of corroboration of the Baker Democrats’ analysis and recommendations appear almost like magic! It has major upside potential to improve economic conditions in Baker County, Oregon as a whole, and the entire United States.

Please note that federal legislation has already been introduced to support this most worthwhile endeavor!
