Letter: A 'magical source' of funding? Taxes

To the Editor:

Mr. [Tim] Ashe said, "There is no magical source." Let me point out there is always the Democrat answer. Raise taxes on the rich other person. After all, Vermont, compared to other states, is only number seven in total taxes, and only number four in proportions of their paycheck. So lots of room to raise taxes. As Vermont ranks 48th in business-friendly and 49th in population, can we not raise them to be number one in taxes and number one in smallest population? Then this will show if people like to pay high taxes, as Democrats tell us.

James W. McSherry,
