OPED: Who is helped, hurt by true tax reform?
All government policy, including taxes, hurts some and helps others. Winners and losers are chosen. Class warfare is applied. Politicians, lobbyists and special interests play the tax system to their advantage.

We have known Bruce Pinckard, the mayor of Annetta, for several years and have worked with him on several projects. We know how he has worked with the members of our community, and have seen what kind of man he is. We were extremely pleased to learn that he has made the decision to run for re-election.
NOW HEAR THIS: Faith, family and fortune – we are what we are
I would suggest that family, faith and fortune may be three of the most defining facets of our existence. They may provide the greatest influence on determining who we are and what we are to become.

We are so fortunate and blessed to live in such a caring and compassionate community. No words I can express can even come close to the appreciation that our family feels towards each and every one of you.
Want a monthly tax refund?
Well it’s not a tax refund exactly; it’s even better. It’s called a prebate. It’s what makes the Fair Tax truly progressive. The prebate comes to you and every resident “head of household” having a valid Social Security number. The Fair Tax Prebate is determined only by “size of household.”
What Easter Sunday means to me
What is Easter? It is not a spring holiday although this designation has become part of it. It is not a day for you and your children to eat much easter candy and colored eggs although that has become part of it. The Easter Bunny is everywhere although that is not part of it. Easter bonnets, new clothes, corsages and flowers are nice although they are not part of it.

If anyone thinks the $60 billion dollar per year tax increase on people earning over $450,000 per year is all the tax increase needed, keep in mind the Bush tax cuts amounts to $300 billion per year. The $60 billion is just 20 percent of what is needed to even start to rebalance revenue with expenditures.
NOW HEAR THIS: Seeing the world with our own eyes
While the genetics of our ancestors greatly influence our being, we are all significantly shaped and molded by our environment. Every aspect of where we lived, how we lived, and what we did during our time on earth has made an impression on every facet of our being.
