Could this Kucinich tax plan be the answer to many of the problems Nevadans are facing?

Kucinich has released a new tax plan just as Bush is about to push through a tax plan to give another tax break to the rich.

Instead of doing this, Kucinich would like to give "$1,250 to families with incomes between $50,000 and $75,000 by simply shifting the tax cuts from those earning over $400,000 a year to those earning less than $78,000. It would double the tax cuts and earned income credits for all those earning under $78,000. With this plan fully enacted that same family would see up to $5,000 a year in additional disposable income resulting in the elimination of the 6.2% employee-paid FICA tax."

Kucinich plans to do this because:

It's time to help working families in America make ends meet while our country's financial future, said Kucinich. President Bush's so-called stimulus plan is just a brazen attempt at delivering more tax cuts to the wealthy. I sincerely hope Congress, the media and all Americans see this scheme for what it is: an awful idea by a reckless leader in his last year in office.

What do the other candidates plan to do?

None of them propose anything as sweeping in reform as Kucinich does. Nobody has the plan to take money from corporations who have been enjoying the free handouts Bush has been giving them for too long but Kucinich does.

See for yourself and after you realize how much difference a vote for Kucinich could make for you financially, vote Dennis in the Nevada Caucus regardless of who you support now.
