Anthony Waraksa: Tax codes need correcting

July 10, 2014 

Your July 10 editorial “ Tax flight” addressed the wrong target. Our Congress creates tax codes, and we “people” as individuals or corporations have the right to take advantage of them.

Look to Congress to correct the code rather than suggest that companies or individuals not take every legal advantage to reduce our taxes. Congress needs more “devil’s advocates,” people whose mission is to point out what may be unintended consequences of its lawmaking.

We deserve better from Congress members. Or maybe not. We elected them.
