In his recent letter, Mark Leyva seems to miss the point about taxes. He says taxes on the wealthy won't raise much money. He misses the point. The wealthy should pay their fair share, regardless of how much money it generates.
He also espouses the same old right-wing, conservative theory that cutting taxes — particularly corporate and capital gains taxes — stimulates the economy and creates jobs. As I recall, George W. and his cronies did just that in his first term. How did that work out for us?
