Letters to the Editor

It's about priorities

To the Editor:

In his letter to the editor ("Robin Hood proposal," April 17), Joe Brabec wrote: "The real rich always will find a way to shelter their wealth and leave the working guy with the bill."

I don't know about that group he mentions, but I and progressives I know are after some of "the real rich," not "anyone with a job," as he wrote. One of the ways the real rich avoid taxes and responsibility for that and their other actions is propaganda to convince Joe Brabec and others that, among other things, anyone who protests their actions is just jealous.

We like success, too, but not by leaving "the working guy with the bill." It's not so simple as tax and spend. Among other things, it's you priorities.
