To the Editor:
The United States must cut taxes across the board, including corporate and individual taxes, or risk becoming the most expensive country in the world in which to operate a business or to earn an income.
Tax reduction, not government bailouts, is the way to return the United States to economic prosperity.
And let corporations and banks fail and go into bankruptcy. Under bankruptcy, they can take the losses of toxic assets, rather than pass the losses off to the public. New jobs need to be created, and the more effective way to do that is to cut taxes.
The United States citizen already supports at least four governments: city, county, state and federal. Their remaining income is used for household expenses, food and clothing. If there is a small amount left, they may either save or use it for recreation. This keeps our stores and business doors open.
Please, elective officials, remember this before you add to our already heavy load.
