Putting moneyed interests over people
Of course, tax cuts aren’t this budget’s only giveaway to the donor class in this budget. The budget also includes tripling of funding for the Opportunity Scholarship voucher program. The program had previously been limited to families with incomes less than 3.7 times the federal poverty level ($111,000 for a family of four). This budget eliminates any income eligibility requirements. As a result, millionaires who have already enrolled their children in private schools will now be eligible for $3,246 worth of public subsidy in the form of vouchers.
