Letters to the editor on sales tax increase, KanCare, reconciling with minorities, Judge Henderson, Koch Vietnam ad, Andover nursing home

Mayor Carl Brewer believes the good citizens of Wichita will pony up another penny for a sales tax, for a job development fund, water development, stabilizing funding for Wichita Transit and the like (May 25 Eagle). Those are all worthy goals, to be sure. But they are not worthy of another regressive sales tax, most of which would fall hardest on the poor, who would have to pay even more for groceries, prescription drugs – items some consider the very necessities of life.
