Stone: Checking the facts

Bob Stone,

Re. Chuck Abrams, “Sirota letter

misleading,” letters, Aug. 25

I agree with Mr. Abrams that columnists should check their facts before submitting columns. This is also a good rule for those who write letters to the editor.

Contrary to Mr. Abrams assertion, David Sirota was correct in stating that Paul Ryan’s budget proposal would totally eliminate all taxes on capital gains, interest and dividends.

A Google search – even including Ryan’s own website – makes no mention of the proposed tax elimination being only for those making less than $250,000 a year. It is true, as stated by Sirota, that if Ryan’s budget proposal passed Romney would pay less than 1 percent tax on his income. It would be a boondoggle for Mitt Romney and all of his super rich buddies.
