Letter: Speaking of Class Warfare

To the Editor:

Conservatives, including a recent Forum writer, love to howl “class warfare” when wealthy people (taxable income above $400,000) are asked to pay a bit more in federal income taxes. My question is: Why wasn’t it class warfare (in the other direction) when the Bush tax cuts saved wealthy people enough in reduced taxes to buy another BMW, while Joe or Josephine Middle Class saved almost enough to replace the dead battery in their only car?
