What happened to helping the little guy?

I agree 100 percent with the Dec. 5 letter, "Sales tax increase would hurt the poor the most." However, it would also hurt middle income families as well as they have children and grandchildren.

Life is tough these days, and the only people we can blame are the greedy ones in power, drawing the big bucks.

This is the same problem with our so-called leaders in Washington who want to stay in office so they can draw big pay checks and retire with a good pension.

God help these greedy people as we Americans are supposed to help each other.
