Where do benefits come from?
Re: June 26 letters “Barton’s sorry.” In the language of a very common man, one reader rants about oil, insurance, pharmaceutical researchers, Wall Street and the producers of coal that is used to generate electricity for his air conditioning.

He recommends that additional benefits be given the little people.
If there is no one producing, creating, discovering or manufacturing, where do the benefits come from? Does he include himself in this subset of human beings, all capable of advancement?

That may be why I pay considerable income taxes year after year. I started out broke. JOSEPH MOSS Austin
