Your Letter: How can those on fixed incomes pay more taxes?

It is rather refreshing to see Commissioner Stearns admit that the county has been depleting the reserve over the past six years while he was county commissioner. Just whom do we blame for the 3.2 percent increase in property taxes in 2010? What about the people who are living on a fixed income? They have no way to come up with the extra money to pay this increase in property taxes.
