The middle class and taxes

Re: “The Democrats’ tax fake-out,” Jan. 10 Per­spec­tive ar­ti­cle.

The Denver Post - - PERSPECTIVE -

While read­ing Megan McAr­dle’s ar­ti­cle on the topic of tax in­creases on the “middle class” to pay for the in­flated prom­ises of the lead­ing Demo­cratic can­di­dates, I’m re­minded of Mar­garet Thatcher’s quote: “The trou­ble with so­cial­ism is that even­tu­ally you run out of other peo­ple’s money.”

Doug Wil­helm, Lit­tle­ton

We are en­ter­ing a pres­i­den­tial elec­tion year. It is a sure bet many politi­cians will be fall­ing all over them­selves say­ing how they will take care of the middle class. Well, I have been in the middle class a few years. I am in the four-score-plus cat­e­gory, so I have been through a num­ber of political sea­sons. When politi­cians say they will take care of the middle class, my sug­ges­tion for those in the middle class is to place your money in a Ma­son jar and bury it deep. Thus, when the politi­cians pass leg­is­la­tion to take care of the middle class, your money will be safe.
