    Tax the rich

    To Gov. Shumlin:

    Please, we donít need two Republican parties protecting the rich in Vermont. †

    The wealth distribution in this country is as bad or worse than it ever has been.†Our record is dismal among developed countries; and even places like Egypt have a fairer distribution.†

    For the rich to threaten to leave the state is extortion which we should not yield to. Further, the commission which we paid $200,000 for said the rich donít leave a state because of taxes.

    I am at a loss to understand your position. Please stop trying to tax the poor.†Support taxes in which the wealthy pay their fair share.

    Janet Nielsen
