In response to Ronda Evans' letter on July 23, "What women want." I consider myself to be reasonably astute when it comes to political issues and polling. I have never heard of anything in any poll even remotely close to the statistical numbers she came up with.
In fact, I believe the only way you could possibly come close to those numbers is to maybe take a sampling of 100 women at a National Organization of Women convention.
Here are a few undisputed statistics. We are $17 trillion in debt (mostly acquired by the current Democratic administration). We are spending more money on welfare and food stamps than anytime in our history, yet we have more people in poverty than ever before. Those millonaires and billionaires that Evans feels we should squeeze a little harder already pay more than 90 percent of all the taxes collected, and many of them pay more than 50 percent of their income in taxes.
The United States has the highest corporate tax rate of any industrial country in the world. If you want to catch a glimpse of what decades of democratic leadership will do for us along with the unions that bankrolled their campaigns, take a tour of Detroit.
Never miss a local story.
