Poverty's price in Alabama

The voices of groups such as Alabama Arise, which advocates on behalf of low-income residents, carry weight, particularly when pursuing sensible options such as revamping the state's upside-down tax structure to help those with little. That Sen. Del Marsh, R-Anniston, said Arise "is a group that is always unhappy with the tax structure of Alabama" sounded a bit shrill and, yet, correct. Alabama Arise is unhappy with the tax structure because it needs revamping.

This Anniston Star editorial addresses concerns raised by the new Kids Count report and other perspectives on poverty in Alabama.
