Gazette staff
Just a few weeks ago, Gov. Mary Fallin joined House and Senate leaders to trumpet an agreement for a reduction in the state personal income tax, lowering the top rate from 5.25 percent to 4.8 percent. It was a major plum for the governor, who had called for eliminating the personal income tax in her State of the State speech earlier this year.

Big, bloated government

Letters to the Editor

Mike Brake
Mickey Hepner’s lament about income tax cuts (Commentary, “Death by a thousand cuts,” June 5, Oklahoma Gazette) claimed that “one small tax cut shrinks our government services.” That assumes that current government services are being wisely funded, but even a cursory look at the state budget raises doubts about that.
