The gap

Oklahoma’s haves and have-nots grow further apart.


Rachel Curtis
Hundreds of thousands of middle- and lower-income Oklahomans this tax season will claim credits that the state Legislature considered eliminating only last year. With 17 percent of Oklahoma City’s residents living below the poverty level of $15,510 for a family of two, losing the Earned Income Tax Credit, the Sales Tax Relief Credit and Child Tax Credit would impact a significant portion of the metro’s most vulnerable families.

Poor figures, poor logic

Letters to the Editor

Thomas L. Furlong
“Figures lie and liars figure” couldn’t be more true than the use of numbers in “The Gap” (Rachel Curtis, April 3, Oklahoma Gazette), which would have us believe there’s a widening gulf between the haves and the have-nots. This is more agenda-driven, left-wing class-warfare crap.
