Income bias on display

Every week there is at least one letter criticizing us conservatives in general and ridiculing the Republicans in particular. Of course we can safely assume these letters are written by government employees just trying to protect their turf. In truth, though, most of the letters are well written, indicating the authors have some education. (I wonder if they have repaid their student loans.)

All their letters have one thing in common. They aren’t bothered with the welfare of the country; they just try to justify their position.

They are always complaining about the wealthy. Perhaps some of these letter writers could have also become wealthy if they hadn’t sought out positions that actually limited their income and benefits.
