Letter: Billionaire bullies
January 13, 2014, 05:00 AM

Editor,

The guest opinion by Mr. John McDowell is a good attack on the one percenters who really run this country (“Billionaire Bullies” in the Jan. 4 issue of the Daily Journal). Where Mr. McDowell fails to mention the vast majority of the 1 percenters support the Republican Party whose voting efforts supports these people who profit at the expense of the middle class and the poor. He only attacks the few 1 percenters that are progressive. He never mentions the Koch brothers or the elevator company owner who went to the Supreme Court to freely donate what ever amounts of his money to his favorite Republican politicians.

As like most Republicans, Mr. McDowell is dealing with half truths and is the pot that calling the kettle black. Which of the two political parties defended tax cuts for the rich?
