Letter: Taxpayers getting the shaft again

-A A +A
By Emilio Arago

We taxpayers have not even begun to recover from the Wall Street bailout and we are again hit-up to bail out Robertson High School for their mismanagement of bond funds?

Just how much are taxpayers expected to cover-up? Many can't even afford the monthly premium on their auto insurance. Why is it the only solution is to turn to the taxpayer? Shouldn’t responsible people be held to account?

Previously, we've had money missing from a city office where only a few individuals had access to the money. Yet, no one has been held to account.

Now, taxpayers are again asked to go in hock for the malfeasance of others. Doesn’t anyone think the taxpayers are fed up?

File charges, make them pay, fire someone — they make more money (from our taxes) than most taxpayers. Conduct investigations and make them pay for their sins. Don’t increase our already high taxes.

In a previous letter to the editor, I reminded all: you can’t squeeze blood out of a turnip.  What part of the adage don’t you understand?

Ya Basta!
