Letter to the Editor
Republicans are holding tax cuts for everyone hostage to get more tax cuts for millionaires hoping that the Democrats will give in. I’d rather see all the tax cuts expire than to go further into debt to fund tax cuts for the rich.
The poor and middle class are getting very little in tax cuts as it is and whatever we get will have to be paid back someday because we have to borrow money to pay for the rich. So if the rich get a tax cut the middle class really doesn’t. We get a few hundred bucks while they get hundreds of thousands.
So I say let them all expire. I’ll give up my trivial cut just to make sure the rich don’t get theirs. We are already trillions in debt from these cuts and we still have 2 wars we are paying for. Americans need to feel the cost of their choices so that we don’t keep making the same mistakes and show some fiscal responsibility.
