I have an idea

To the editor:
I have often dealt with our local vendors and businesses and I’m here to tell you that most are extremely generous, kind and community orientated.
As our economy shrinks, they too must deal with higher food prices along with spikes in gasoline and utilities.  They struggle to keep prices competitive while working longer hours to minimize shrinking profits.  They create many jobs but times like these make it harder to hang on to necessary staff.
I have an idea though, why don’t we just raise their taxes, we’ve seen how well that worked for the rest of our country.
