LETTER:Biden’s taxes

A couple days ago I bought gas at Costco, $4.03 per gallon.

Later I caught the president going on about raising taxes, especially for the rich billionaires.

This gave me pause to reflect.

Additional taxes will mean little to the very rich, as they will simply get their accountants, and lawyers to find additional loopholes, send money offshore, and employ lobbyists to subvert any legislation.

The brunt of his raising taxes will fall on the middle class especially, since the lower class pay almost no taxes.

The people being hurt by his policies are the lower and middle classes.

I’m not much of a shopper, but I certainly notice when gas almost doubles, or going to McDonald’s costs $25 for two.

He is strangling the fuel industry through regulation, and propping up wind, and solar, i.e. electric.

So called clean energy may be the standard at some point in the future, but for the here and now we can’t rely on something that is barely there.

Lower income people don’t buy electric cars.

They are too expensive, even with government subsidy.

Most electric cars I’ve seen are Teslas.

The cheapest of which costs $45,000, out of the reach of lower and middle lower classes.

The point is, what he has done, and what he proposes to do, hurts the lower and middle class.

Hurting now, and in the future.
