In response to Carol Lazear Mitchell's letter published May 5, I take issue with the statement if everyone paid their fair share instead of taking extreme measures to avoid paying taxes we wouldn't have a problem. The facts are if the taxes were doubled on the top 1 percent, it would reduced the national debt about 8 percent, or run the government for about 30 days. How does that solve the problem? The president is in the top 1 percent and paid 18 percent in taxes. Amazingly, NBC questioned if he felt that was a fair share.
