Why do the super rich need more?

Editor,

Please help me, I don’t get it! Why, in the GOP Trump budget, do they give millions, or is it billions, in tax breaks to the ultra rich, including Trump and his billionaire cabinet? And while taking “Meals on Wheels,” Big Bird, and in home support programs away. These are programs needed for life itself!

Why, again, do they think the super rich need more while the poorest among us are getting too much? Aren’t we a caring nation or just a nation of greed? Please help me understand this atrocity.

Thank you,

NANCY MAYER
