I am disturbed by President Bush's tax rebate. It is a hollow attempt to buy voter loyalty and divert attention from his tax reforms that create tax breaks for the wealthy and no tax relieve for those at the bottom of the income scale.
Please join me in redirecting your tax rebate to where you think it is needed. Working Assets and Give for Change will match our contributions to a nonprofit group at their Web site www.giveforchange.com.
If Don Smith wants unity in Juneau, the best thing he can do is to turn over the editorial writing to Steve Reed. Greenie bashing may go over big down at the Chamber, but it isn't going to do the community any good.
I love you Mark Regan!
