Re Taxes: I am 71 years old went to work every day, raised my children and worked hard. Every month, I saved a little money from my paycheck and invested it.

Why now should I feel guilty because my investments were profitable? Why do we have to support 51 percent of the people who pay nothing? We did not adopt them. This is communism.

The wealthy keep this economy stable. I lived in former East Germany. I know what communism and socialism are like. I escaped to have a better life and now I feel that is being taken away from me.
