    Tax the rich

    To Gov. Shumlin:

    Please, we don’t 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 don’t 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.
