I am the widow of a US Veteran, the single mother of a disabled child, and a critically acclaimed--ahem--starving romance writer. I live on a very limited income, and many months we barely make ends meet.
However, I beg you, please do not extend our tax break if it means the wealthiest Americans will also get theirs. Please, let us pay our fair share so they will pay theirs, too. America needs the money. We need the money to keep schools open, to pay teachers, to provide food and shelter and health care to those who have none. We need to take care of our Veterans who have given their all for our country.
Please...do not give us a tax break. Not if it means the Buffets and Trumps of this world also get one. Make them pay their fair share.
Thank you, Mr. President.
Mother, Grandmother, and...
