Letter: Elitists

March 30, 2014 

Well, it seems our elected officials once again have proven they are the elitist regime. To some that doesn't come as a shock. I am here to ask the people in Idaho a simple question. Did you know if you have a health insurance policy on which your employer pays the premium you will be taxed on amount of premiums paid by your employer for 2014? Yes, that no longer will be a benefit, it now becomes a liability. There is no provision for you to withhold more to accommodate that increased income, So, when your usual $1,000 refund turns into a $500 debt, you can thank elected officials. So, Butch, when you can't attract the best quality employees, look no further than the end of your pen, it starts there.
