Taxes aren’t a problem; nation spends too much

I would like to reply to the My View column about improving our nation. The writer states in the last two paragraphs that he does not hate the rich or envy them. But after reading his column, it seems to me he does. We can take every single cent from the rich and we would not put a dent into this ridiculous $16.1 trillion debt. Guess what, we have a spending problem, not a tax problem.
