David Sirota’s column, “Facts about tax fairness are certainly compelling” (Feb. 25), offers America a step in the right direction.

Tax fairness would result in having the money needed to easily fund the universal preschool initiative and the free community college idea. Both of those would help close the income inequality tragedy in America.

The universal preschool initiative would help by getting kids ready for school, more likely to graduate high school, and less likely to be a burden on society later in life.

The free community college plan would train students for good jobs or give them a chance to continue to a four-year school.

Meantime, money would also be available to improve America’s infrastructure, providing good jobs in the process.

Of course, the best chance for all that to happen is if citizens raise their voices in support of tax fairness. If elected representatives don’t listen, there is also the power of the vote in elections.
