Re: Nothing wrong with rewarding hard work (PNR letters Oct. 21)
I would urge Bob to ask his late-20s or early-30s son/daughter to attempt to get a 3 million dollar loan to start a grocery store. Or to even try and buy a piece of land to put a car dealership on. Long gone are the days when anyone could start a business and not be so competed against that failure isn’t a “what-if”, but a when.
The problem with the system (and the main focus of occupy wherever) is taxation ….The lowest incomes shouldn’t be taxed, the higher tax brackets should pay the biggest sums, because they can afford to. That is what we wish to see in a fair world.
