Seattle Times letters to the editor

Car tax breaks

Big-vehicle buyers shouldn’t get tax dollars for their mistake

What? Let me get this straight: Because I had the sense to buy a fuel-efficient vehicle, and some other bozo bought an eight-mile-per-gallon Hummer, he should get $4,500 of my taxes toward the purchase of the vehicle he should have bought in the first place? [“House backs big boost for car buyers,” front page, June 10]

Something is fundamentally wrong with this idea.

–Jim Conchie, Seattle
