Letter to the Editor

President Obama has been touting the “Buffet Rule” – that billionaires like Warren Buffet shouldn’t pay a lower tax rate than his secretary. I think they should call it the “Romney Rule” instead. As we come up on April 15th to pay our taxes we are reminded that presidential candidate Mitt Romney only pays a 15% tax rate while a middle class person like myself pays 30%. I don’t see why I should pay twice the tax rate Mitt Romney does. We need to pass the “Romney Rule” so that millionaires like Romney have the same opportunity to contribute to America that I do.
