In response to Ron Paitich’s letter of April 20, “Tea Party must address issues,” with all due respect Ron, please do your homework first. Tax cuts do increase revenue (fact). Congress spends more than it receives (fact). Presidents do not have the power to spend (fact). Only the House of Representatives has the power to originate spending. I think you are missing the point of the Tea Party movement, in which case you should stop reading the signs and start listening to the message. Bob Ward, Auburn
