Letter: Candidates out of touch on taxes
About your article, "Let's talk economy, economy, economy" on Aug. 4, I found the comments of our CD1/LD1 Republican candidates a bit out of touch with the realities of balancing a budget.
It seems that they all support cutting taxes, which, if they get their way, will certainly drive our already huge (both state and federal) budget deficits higher and higher! Certainly, cutting spending is needed and our state Legislature has done some of that, but to balance any budget (state, federal, business or personal), more income is required ... and that requires RAISING TAXES!
