Taxes Provide Needed Services

August 21, 1994

* I've never understood what are true conservative Republican principles--lower taxes, fewer regulations and less government interference in our lives ("Intraparty Squabbles Aid GOP Rivals," Letter, Aug. 14).

Does that mean the terrible taxes that provide us with highways, bridges, libraries, schools, child labor laws, meat inspection, consumer protection and product labeling on our food and drugs, just to mention a few "government on our backs" controls?

Silent majority of the Republican Party 70th Assembly District: Who would you appeal to if you were out of a job, sick, hungry and homeless--your wealthy Republican friends or big business? Most likely you would head for the unemployment office--God forbid, a government agency--or seek refuge for food and shelter at a mission.

There is more to life than saving the rich from taxes.
