Austerity measures are affecting the poor disproportionately, increasing inequality.  We see this as an injustice:  everyone has a right to a fair share and everyone ought to contribute fairly.  It's the government's job to make sure this happens.

Many people are willing to pay an extra penny in tax to help prevent cuts to benefits and services.
