On Monday, we celebrate the life of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., his legacy, and the movement he helped lead. In just three months, on April 4th, will mark the 50th Anniversary of the tragedy of his assassination. As such, we are at a point now in our country's history where a growing majority of Americans simply were not alive during Dr. King's life and feel only a connection to him through black and white photos, history lessons, and grainy film footage of his "I Have a Dream" speech on the March on Washington in front of the Lincoln Memorial.
There is no doubt that Dr. King's voice thundered across this nation, and in moral indignation, torn apart the foundations of an amoral political system which systematically excuded and discriminated against African-Americans. He bent the arc of a moral universal closer to justice. But where does Dr. King, his philosophy, and his legacy connect to the issues of America today in the Age of Trump?

When it comes to taxes, Governor Kasich isn't much different than Kansas Governor Sam Brownback's failed experiment on marching to eliminate progressive income taxes. As the Ohio faces it's own self-induced budget mess, maybe it should eliminate the same business owner tax cut that failed in Kansas as well.
