Class envy alive and well here

I love reading the angry letters from the left who hate SUVs and want to tax the rich. It is great to see that class envy is alive and doing well in Nevada County.

If we need more state revenue, let’s raise the sales tax to 10 or 15 percent, and then we can all pay according to our consumption. No need to worry about who’s rich and who’s not, and who needs an SUV to pull their trailers and transport their families!

And one more thing: When out of work or ill, I can’t remember expecting the president to solve my problem!
