Fiscal balance is needed

Re "Whitman unveils her stands," Feb. 11

Fifty percent of taxes, Meg Whitman points out, are paid by 1% of the people. No wonder I feel so sorry for you poor billionaires. Perhaps if you'd work to more equitably apportion income and wealth, you'd have to pay fewer taxes. Until then, Meg, I'll be happy to swap you my tax rate for your wealth.

The Times' article on Whitman contains a subheadline that comments on her "conservative" views. When a Democratic candidate surfaces, will you have headlines about their "liberal" views?
