Subject: Do the right thing for a change

Comment: Dear Panel Members.
I don't envy your task for the implications are great to all of us who will suffer the consequences of your decisions. I fear you are heading in the wrong direction. Please don't become yet another proponent of simply shifting the tax bill up the food chain. I simply ask that you do NOT abolish the home mortgage deductions or tax businesses on insurance benefits. My home is paid for & I'm nearing retirement... so I'm not asking you to do the right thing for me, but for my children and the ecomomy. Respectfully, I ask that you remember we are watching and will be the final judge of your performance.
