New National War Tax Resistance Coordinating Committee Newsletter

A new issue of NWTRCC’s newsletter, More Than a Paycheck, is out.

Some of what you’ll find inside:

The debate about whether or not NWTRCC should endorse the Religious Freedom Peace Tax Fund bill was interesting.

Supporters of the bill tend to project their hopes for what they think such a bill ought to accomplish onto the actual bill that’s being proposed. In doing so, they make claims for what the bill would do that are not supported by the bill’s actual substance.

But there was actually much less of this in the current debate than usual. With one exception, even the supporters of the bill recognized that it is flawed and that it would not accomplish much of substance. More remarkable to me were the number of people in the debate who said that they don’t support the bill or the “peace tax fund” idea in general, but who think that NWTRCC should go ahead and endorse it anyway so as to better preserve our good ties with the National Campaign for a Peace Tax Fund.
