Left Perpetuates Class Warfare

The bigger the lie, the more it will be believed
I have noticed a number of letters in The Star expressing anger over the so called George W. Bush-era tax cuts for the wealthy. I wonder whether those writers are rabid partisans knowingly repeating a lie, or are simply useful in perpetuating class warfare.

Anyone with a modicum of awareness would know that retaining existing tax rates for everyone cannot be construed as a tax cut for the wealthy. Yet so many think the Congress gave tax cuts to the rich before they adjourned.

Debate on whether retention of the tax rates is good for the economy is welcome. History from President John F. Kennedy on has repeatedly proven that allowing earners to keep more of what they earn stimulates growth and results in higher revenue to the federal coffers, not less.

Taking more money from the productive has a stifling effect. We cannot afford the latter in this economic climate.
