To the Editor:
Very recently our president asked the CEOs of very wealthy companies such as Apple, Microsoft and others, to please hire people who have been the longest out of work.
I think this was a wonderful request; however, our president has been raising cane for years that the wealthy must give up more money in the form of taxation. Now he wants a favor from them.
Our president would have come out better had he not beaten up on the rich and asked them to help with jobs to help our whole country. If the CEOs did not come through, make up his mind then.
As I see it, the wealthy have the means to give, even when it is not needed by a company — jobs, jobs, jobs.
