tax whores and dealers

September 16, 2008

To the Editor of the SF Chronicle:

Our California political leadership can't find enough money to pay our bills. (SF Chronicle, 9/16/08)
It is not popular to raise taxes among the citizenry nor businesses.

How about taxing those who presently earn enormous amounts of money in our capitalistic, free enterprise system but pay no taxes?

Prostitution and the drug trade are billion dollar industries in California. Legalizing those businesses would bring in huge amounts of tax dollars that presently are not paid in those free trade professions. Courts and prisons would no longer be choked with hookers and pushers thus saving even more money. Police would be freed to fight real crime. Medical costs would be reduced because emergency rooms and public hospitals would not be filled with the gunshot wounded and sexually transmitted diseased.
