McClintock, the billionaires’ pal

In response to a letter from Gwen Myers (Reader Input, Oct. 31): I couldn’t tell whether Ms. Myers was serious or whether she was pulling our leg in support of Tom McClintock. This is a man who voted to give government handouts to the oil companies, most of whom pay no taxes. This is a man who protects billionaires so they don’t have to pay their fair share of taxes. I agree with Ms. Myers that McClintock wants to “decrease spending,” but unfortunately the spending he wants to cut helps the poor and elderly. This is a man who wants to get rid of Social Security as we know it. This is not a man fighting for us ... unless you happen to be a billionaire. Gary Miller, Roseville
