Tax breaks for veterans unfair to other retirees [Letter]

As a 67-year-old retiree living in Maryland my whole life I am sick and tired of politicians picking winners and losers ("Hogan tells veterans he would eliminate state income tax on military pensions July 16).

As one of the tens of thousand of Bethlehem Steel workers who lost 50 percent of our pensions when the company filed for bankruptcy, I feel we are being discriminated against because we didn't work for government or the military.

All Maryland retirees should be treated the same as any government worker. Maybe this would stop a lot of my friends who have moved out of Maryland.
