Letter to the editor:

Campaign money could go to charity

With so many people in the United States who go to bed hungry, and with Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich spending millions of dollars trying to become the next president, it’s totally insane that they both say they want to help people. If they are so sincere, why don’t they spend half of their money on commercials and the other half helping feed people who are hungry?

One thing that irks me: Millionaires who complain about paying 30 percent in taxes. Ask any American not making a million dollars if they would be willing to pay 30 percent in taxes on a million-dollar income. So Republicans should stop complaining when President Barack Obama says we should make the paying field level.
