Letter: Stop wasting time, taxes

To the Editor:

I’m sure glad our high-paid Washington officials spent the year being concerned about Russian influence in elections.

Please tell me how many Russian citizens walked past our poll watchers and voted.

Influence in elections has been around since Day 1. Pro or con on guns or other issues.
Would someone please make a motion to pass the Russian influence issue to the Illinois legislators so they can get their mind off raising taxes? They are trying to raise some taxes I didn’t even know I paid.

How do we solve the pension problem without a tax increase? Pay every retiree $3,000 in cash and the rest in Illinois IOUs. They could sell them to whoever.
