Just a couple comments on some recent letters:

First, FOX is not a news network. They are the propaganda arm of the Republican Party and have fed more lies to this country than all other networks combined. To top it off, it's owned by a Brit. I get more facts from The Daily Show, which takes apart FOX on a regular basis. I for one am glad we have a Democrat who finally is willing to say enough is enough.

Second, the poor do pay taxes, they just get most of it back at the end of the year. But not their Social Security Tax just like everyone else. A flat tax would be great, but the rich would never let that happen since that would cut into their income more that what the president has planned now. Also, the poor would pay even less. You can't tax an income that isn't there.

Just remember when things get even worse than they are now, you voted for it.
