Reader Opinion: Lower taxes, reduce debt

When you vote this year, vote for those willing to fight for lower taxes for everyone. The U.S. national debt in 2016 is $19.4 trillion. We need to start repealing laws that keep increasing taxes. Government has gotten way out of hand.

When you vote this year, vote for those willing to fight for lower taxes for everyone. The U.S. national debt in 2016 is $19.4 trillion. We need to start repealing laws that keep increasing taxes. Government has gotten way out of hand.

As an example, Josh Heintzeman's campaign literature this year cites his number one accomplishment as "Chief author of legislation that exempts veterans' benefits from state income taxes." All this means is that others are making up the difference. That is not an accomplishment. An accomplishment would be cutting government spending that will benefit all.

Read campaign literature and see if that candidate is who you want making decisions that will affect all and reduce or debt. We don't need more Robin Hoods who take from some to favor others.
