In the doing the math, the vote count doesn't seem narrow, so the reporter really would do its readership well to explain how that "narrow" term comes about. It would also be helpful to the voters to know how Democrats and Republicans voting on this important policy issue.

Why should any level of income earners pay a different percentage of their income as taxes than any other?

Any "progressive" tax rate scheme, although noble and charitable sounding is nothing more or less than a wealth redistribution scheme that penalizes hard work and success.

Sure, the high earners have higher income. They also pay proportionately more in taxes, and give a much higher percentage of their earnings to charitable causes.

Utah should not engage in the despicable "class warfare" being waged by the national Democrats.

NO ONE should get more in their refund than what they paid in taxes.

Unfortunately the Federal earned income tax credit provides for that. hopefully the state earned income credit does not.

Paying a set percentage is more then fair.

Let's keep it simple.
