Gavin Newsom’s ambitious plan to cut poverty in California
[link to www.vox.com (secure)]


Gavin Newsom, the newly inaugurated governor of California, has a big proposal for low-income people in his first budget: more than doubling the state’s Earned Income Tax Credit, or EITC. It’s a change that will put hundreds or thousands of extra dollars in the pockets of millions of poor and working-class Californians.

You might have heard of the federal EITC. It’s the largest dedicated anti-poverty program in the federal budget; in 2016, it kept an estimated 5.8 million people out of poverty, and made another 18.7 million people less poor. But most states (29 plus DC, to be precise) also have state EITCs, to offer additional support.

California’s state EITC is relatively recent, coming into effect in 2015. And unlike the federal credit, it’s specifically targeted at the very lowest-income Californians. If you’re a single parent of two, for instance, you can claim the federal EITC if you make as much as $45,802. In California, though, only parents making under $24,950 (or nearly half the federal maximum) would qualify. Until an expansion in 2017, the maximum income was less than $15,000.

That means that for very low-income people — say, a single mom of two who only makes $7,300 a year — the California EITC can be nearly as valuable as its federal version. This interactive from the California Budget and Policy Center offers a good illustration:

Re: Gavin Newsom’s ambitious plan to cut poverty in California
That's right Gavin, increase the tax load on your citizens and companies who are actually productive and give it to the leaches who just suck the states blood, there's a good way to add incentive for them not to continue fleeing the state.
In case you hadn't noticed Gavie you schmuck, when you subsidize something YOU GET MORE OF IT but then maybe that's the goal after all?

hmm
That was fun but oh well...
