Let­ters to the ed­i­tor

The Covington News - - Opinion -

Dear Ed­i­tor: Thanks to Mr. Robin­son for call­ing it out loud in his ar­ti­cle “Rom­ney’s class war­fare” in the week­end is­sue. Even though we merely pay in­come tax, my hus­band and I are hard­work­ing peo­ple and pay our share in pay­roll tax (which I con­sider just an­other form of in­come tax), prop­erty tax and sales tax. It was sim­ply out­ra­geous what this ar­ro­gant per­son let out at this fundraiser (as­sum­ing these 47 per­cent of “lazy bums” would never get to hear this). It was a slap in the face of ev­ery hard­work­ing Amer­i­can, an in­sult to all Amer­i­cans who worked so hard be­fore their re­tire­ment, and all work­ing par­ents who are rais­ing young tax pay­ers, jug­gling mul­ti­ple jobs. Just be­cause he was “born with the sil­ver spoon” does not give Mr. Rom­ney the right to dep­re­cate those who forged this sil­ver spoon in count­less hours of un­der­paid la­bor and sweat. The pro-Rom­ney Republicans are dis­grac­ing them­selves with such a can­di­date. Also thanks to Scott Ras­mussen for his com­ment.
