Reader Disagrees With Brother on Taxes
Sunday’s paper on April 7, 2013, had a letter to the editor from my brother “Earl” from Crowley arguing against the sales tax because it adversely effects the low income. I agree with that 10 percent of his comments, but disagree with the other 90 percent. A well thought out plan could reimburse those at poverty level for taxes paid for necessities on an annual basis, thus nullifying that argument.
The more important, and never discussed, issue is the fact that nearly 50 percent of people pay no income taxes, and yet are welcomed with open arms to vote on issues to raise taxes on those of us who do. They have nothing to lose when joyfully voting to raise taxes since it doesn’t affect them. When they do have to pay taxes on all purchases they may think a little harder before making their selection.
