Letter to the editor: Misdirected protest

Misdirected protest

Received April 16

To protest Donald Trump for his tax returns is the wrong direction. You need to look at who passed the current tax codes. They (Congress and Senate) have been in the same office way too long, they have been bought out by lobbyists (big money).

They made the tax codes for themselves to become rich on the taxpayers’ backs.

The lobbyists pay them to pass legislation for the rich to get richer. Maybe this is where we need to make changes if we don’t like what they have done. To protest the new president of United States for following the tax code is the wrong way. He is the one who could make some changes.

Start with your own representative first, let them know how you feel. If they don’t do anything, then vote them out!
