To The Daily: My letter is in response to the editorial "Romney writes off 47 percent of us." American citizens have generous hearts and wish better for those receiving qualified entitlements. They also want wisdom in management of spending. Our president has expressed publicly his plans "will not be a problem short term, but will be long term."
Take away party, the past, all the "he said/she said" and put only economics on the table for discussion. Every resident gets the same benefits from taxes. The 47 percent who pay zero taxes and the people who pay millions get benefits such as education, the judicial system, weather monitoring, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Food and Drug Administration, communication, the Department of Defense, the military and other benefits.
The rich are paying 61 percent of taxes and we are asking for more from them. The rich do not have to live in the U.S. What if they move?
In the paragraph, "How does a person with no assets, no access to health care, no child care, no transportation and ability to finance an education lift himself from poverty?" Why are we having children if we have those issues you listed? Where is the responsibility applied? The number of single mothers is growing, which puts more burdens on society. What is the solution for that?
Do the research on the deficit. How much has it been increased in the last three years? The big idea has been big spending, and basic math is ignored. I do not fear Romney's proposals because success and free enterprise have fueled the economy of this country, but I do fear what more debt and China can do to us.
