Letter: ‘”Tax the rich” seems a bit too close to home’

January 9, 2023

Seen parked at a location on the east side of our fair city: A gray Porsche Carrera (from $106,000 on up) bearing a bumper sticker that reads: “Tax the super rich!” 

Would this be more or less progressive than just “Tax the rich?” I don’t know. But “Tax the rich” seems a bit too close to home, don’t you think?
