Oklahoma Senate gives the shaft to the state's poorest people

The news from Oklahoma just keeps getting worse.  Despite religious leaders pleading with legislators, the Oklahoma Senate voted 31-7 last Thursday to do away with the earned income tax credit.  This benefited the poorest people in Oklahoma who can't even afford to pay income tax.

The senate will also consider doing away with child tax credit and sales tax relief credit.
