In response to Damien Lodes (Your Views, July 14): The idea on the left is that the rich aren't paying their fair share. Whose money is it anyway? Liberals in government think it's their money. The problem is that even raising these taxes won't fix the deficit, or the economy. Some small businesses make more thanr $250,000 and most small-business owners know that President Obama's talking points are false. They'll already be taxed by Obama's health care law.
Career politicians and lawyers in Congress are making policies and decisions in industries and sectors they never worked in. Giving them more money isn't a needed or workable solution. What liberals still don't get is that we have a spending problem.
