Logic, not class warfare

My response to Matt O’Neal’s letter (Feb. 3) on solving the immediate fiscal needs of our state government is that the government owes its citizens the duty to protect them, and the citizens in turn have the duty to fund their government adequately.

As the rich have more to protect than the poor, it’s appropriate they pay more. There’s no class warfare there, just logic.
