It's not enough for The Sun's editorial board to cheer on Gov. Martin O'Malley as he raised and/or increased 40-plus taxes. Now you have to urge the federal government to do the same ("The toll on America," Dec. 6).

Why don't you just say that you are for eliminating the middle class and be honest.

The government gets plenty of revenue, but it's time to set priorities. That requires management, and as the Affordable Care Act roll out is showing, competent management is in short supply in any government operation.

Lyle Rescott, Marriottsville
