Letter: Sanders wants to increase taxes on the wealthiest 1%

Sanders wants to increase taxes on the wealthiest 1%

In Sunday’s “Everybody’s Column” page, there was a picture of Bernie Sanders with the misleading caption that stated only that he vows to raise taxes if elected president. It did not bother to explain that any tax increases would be levied almost exclusively on the wealthiest 1 percent, or that if single-payer health care is initiated at a slight increase in payroll taxes, that this increase would be more than offset by savings from not having to pay co-pays, deductibles or monthly premiums.
