Marriage Penalty Tax MUST End!

Thursday, President George W. Bush sent his $1.6 trillion, 10-year tax-cut proposal to the 107th Congress. "We need tax relief now. In fact, we need tax relief yesterday," commented Bush before Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill delivered the plan to the Republican leadership. Among the measures in the tax proposal is the elimination of the "Marriage Penalty" Tax.

--The average American married couple pays $1,400/year more than an unmarried couple with the same income. A high-income family can be penalized by as much as $20,000/year.

--The marriage penalty has forced some mothers to seek work outside of the home to help meet the basic needs of the family.

--Heavenly Father, forgive America for punishing those who choose to marry. Give the American Family a VOICE to speak out against this unholy tax. Cause Congress to DO THE RIGHT THING and ABOLISH the Marriage Penalty Tax. In Jesus' Name, AMEN! (Ps 129:1-4; Mt 19:6; Mk 10:9; Rev 19:9)
