Letters to the Editor

Government's money is really our money

A recent letter writer chastised Rep. Nikki Haley's defense of her tax problems, and states, "(she) made no mention of the time she did not send to the government taxes withheld from employees' paychecks. That money withheld was not hers; it was the governments. Diverting it for company use. ..." Seriously, it was the government's money? Perhaps after the writer gets done writing letters expounding on the reality of Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy, maybe he could tell us about the Social Security "lockbox," where all of "our money" sent to the government, has remained untouched and unspent for the past 70 years.
