Letter to the editor: Flat tax brings many problems
Placeholder Image
From LaVern F. Isely Monroe To the editor: If you're in politics, which all voters should be so they are representing the group that best exemplifies the class they are living in, you better understand how politics is working through both political parties - Democrats and Republicans. This year, since Donald Trump got selected as the Republican candidate, who happens to be the first billionaire that I ever remember to run, which class of people is he going to represent? That would be the richest 1 percent or the 99 percent which are trying to work their way up the ladder, like President Franklin Roosevelt set up with about 10 different income tax brackets, starting out at about 10 percent and working all the way up to 90 percent.
