Is there a Catholic position on taxes?

 |  NCR Today

"The fierce debate over whether to extend Bush-era tax cuts has become front-page news and provoked a steady stream of punditry as the midterm elections approach," writes John Gehring of Faith in Public Life.

Gehring says, "There is some pretty specific language in Catholic social teaching about 'reasonable and fair application of taxes.' "

He is urging Catholic leaders to speak up in the debate.
