SENIOR CITIZEN

Many of you men and women over the age of 65 are barely getting by on a fixed income, or on far more modest resources than in your working years, when you helped make this country as strong as it is today. Meanwhile, your taxes go up nearly every year, and your healthcare costs continue to skyrocket. It's an appalling and indefensible disgrace that your benefits should be cut and your health care should be substandard. Yet the taxes you pay on your meager income are subsidizing religious institutions that pay absolutely nothing toward the benefits and services they receive. That's because you are paying it for them.

We believe this is fundamentally unjust, and that with respect to taxes religious institutions should simply be treated like everybody else.

Frankly we would rather see YOU get tax exemptions than the clergy, but that's really not the point. We think it unjust that these tremendously wealthy organizations are simply exempt from paying their fair share of taxes - an enormous sum that would go a long way toward providing better healthcare benefits for people like you.

No one is asking you to abandon your church or your faith. Think about it: once churches, mosques and synagogues are paying their fair share of taxes, your own tax burden will be proportionally less, and consequently you will be in a better position to financially support whatever religious institution(s) you wish.

WE DO NOT WANT YOUR MONEY. REALLY.

But the next time Congress is slashing your benefits because they need $20 billion a year to finance another war, tell them they should look no further than an income tax on religious income. Tell them this:

Tax the churches.
