Reader believes wealthy should pay their “fair share”

Question: Who was the president of the United States from 1993 to 2000 when: this country prospered with the greatest economic expansion in history? This country had the lowest unemployment rate in 30 years? This country had the lowest poverty rate in 20 years? This country had back-to-back balanced budgets and surpluses for the first time in 42 years? This country was put on a path to eliminate the federal debt within a decade? This country had the lowest crime rate in 25 years?
Answer: William Jefferson Clinton.
It is time the wealthy and large corporations pay their fair share of taxes. Their excuse always is if they have to pay taxes they can’t use their money to create jobs. Well, wake up Republicans. G.W. Bush gave the wealthy and corporations their no tax break during his first term as president. At that time everywhere you went were billboards and signs on factories in every city with help wanted signs. Most factories advertised their pay at $14 or more per hour. The wealthy and large corporations used this money to load up their machinery out of their factories and sent it to foreign countries such as China or Korea. Now everywhere you go if you do see a help sign, it is at a fast food restaurant.
Make the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes and get this country rolling again.
