Rich-bashing getting old
I am sick and tired of people who complain to your paper that Republicans favor the rich and their so-called tax loopholes.
The rich pay almost all of our tax burden. Almost 50 percent of all Americans (which includes many middle-class folks) pay no income tax. Yet these freeloaders complain when Americans who work hard for their money merely want to keep it for their own families and resent it when others want to redistribute it. Those who earn money have a right to it.
Their money should not be up divided up by others who think they have a claim to it.
Start a dialogue, stay on topic and be civil.

The property tax overcharge refunds are in the hands of Basalt residents. A new civic organization is cranking up its campaign to have recipients contribute some or all of their refunds to the Basalt Gives effort to benefit midvalley-serving nonprofits.
