Equality of Poverty

Daily News 6/6/11

Re: “Sacrificing too much for rich” (Letters, May 31):

Before complaining about “sacrificing too much just to make rich people richer,” the writer should learn historical facts. In 2006, the top 1 percent of income earners paid 35% of our country’s income taxs. As of last year, 51% of income earners pay no income tax. The national economy does much better when people are motivated to get rich than when government invokes equality of income policies.
