“Lottery Expansion Draws In the Poor” A response to the Sun-Sentinel
Your recent front page article, “Lottery Expansion Draws in the Poor” is very true. This, and many other ways of raising money for government activities through taxation, will have a negative impact on working class people and the poor. The latest initiative of two, half penny sales taxes will also have a negative impact on poor and lower income people. The proposed taxes will affect the poor, as a higher percentage of income, more than the upper middle class and the rich. I look forward to a Sun-Sentinel editorial opposing the new taxes as it is a heavier burden on the people least able to pay them.
