Re: Timm Herdt's Aug. 13 essay, "Which tax will increase?":
Herdt's conclusions and comments are far off the mark. It seems he has the belief that, if no cuts, there must be an increase of a tax to balance the state budget. Right.
How draconian! If he really wanted to help, he'd consider how all households balance their budgets. When the money coming in is not enough to cover the money going out, what is one to do? Reduce the money going out. It's simple, not difficult to understand. Painful? Yes. Necessary? Absolutely. Will it solve the problem? Yes. How? It will teach legislators to stay within budget and not continue to tax.
