My position on fiscal responsibility in government is that our representatives should increase the return (in goods and services) of the tax dollars received. I propose a return rate of 15 percent — up from the current 10 percent return on the tax dollar. This represents a 5 percent increase in governmental efficiency. Given this, all Social Security, SSI and assistance checks could be increased by one-third. The rest (in goods and services) would be increased on an “across-the-board” basis. This would put America back to work, and the economy would flourish. Until another time ... CHARLES PATTERSON, Auburn
