Support A06009.

Kevin Cahill's Quality in Education Act (A06009) which would move the charge for school costs away from property taxes and on to income. But neither the Assembly nor the Senate seems to have the nerve to stand up to the wealthy and make them pay their fair share. This is the only solution to the problem and yet it's the one that lacks the political will in Albany to achieve. It requires that we go back to a graduated income tax structure and away from the flat one we have today where someone earning $25k and someone earning $250k pays the same rate of income taxes. The Omnibus, the circuit breaker, the caps... they're all measures that require you to have the money up front - which is exactly what people do not have.
