Maybe class warfare’s in order

EDITOR:

House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner has accused President Obama of “Class Warfare” by calling for higher taxes on the wealthy to help repair some of the damage done by the Bush Administration’s disastrous foreign, domestic and financial policies. Is it class warfare to ask this privileged segment of our society to help save what remains of the American middle class? If so, let’s get on with it.

If the speaker is not too engrossed in pushing through legislation granting immunity to the bankers who stole homes from thousands of hard working Americans via illegal foreclosure procedures, I suggest he Google “The causes, history and consequences of the French Revolution.”

John O’Neill
