I am not seeing what’s so objectionable here.

In today’s letters to the editor of the San Antonio Express-News:

I see where both Bill O’Reilly and Rush Limbaugh complained about proposed tax hikes to lower the deficit. O’Reilly threatened to quit his TV show since the tax would be too big a burden on his $10 million-plus salary.

These are the same guys who a few months ago challenged the integrity, patriotism and salaries of teachers and firefighters of Wisconsin when they objected to the benefits reduction by Gov. Scott Walker in order to help balance Wisconsin’s budget.

Talk about class warfare!

No, actually, it isn’t class warfare at all. Why? Because we’re talking about cutting public-sector spending. What O’Reilly and Limbaugh were doing, albeit perhaps ham-handedly, was what they’ve always done: comment against more taxes and spending. I am quite sure that both Limbaugh and O’Reilly pay more in taxes in two or three years than that letter-writer will in a lifetime.
