For the love of taxes

Dear Editor:

I don’t know what the proposed health plan contains. But it certainly is a step in the right direction. What I do know is that it will be costly and that it should be paid by increases in the “graduated income tax” that has been in effect since 1913.

The “rich” have always paid a higher percent in taxes as they get richer. Seems fair to me.

I consider paying taxes a privilege. Except for last year, I am pleased to report that for the previous 25 years I have paid the maximum. God, have I been lucky. The more money I have made, the more taxes I pay.

If you love America you have got to love paying taxes.
