Letter to the Editor
I keep hearing on the news Republicans saying that we shouldn’t raise taxes in the rich because we are “punishing success”. Are you kidding me? They turned Wall Street into a casino and when they crashed the economy we had to bail them out. And that’s what they call success. We bailed them out and we owe the money? No no no no no! We bailed them out, that is not success, and they owe us money.
Why should we reward failure with upper class tax breaks and have their wealth explode while the rest of America is being tricked down upon? I don’t think so! They should pay us back through higher taxes until their debt is paid off. They caused the problem and we shouldn’t be stuck paying for it.
