Spending, taxing problem?

By Michael Schaffer - Managing editor
Daily Iowegian

CENTERVILLE — The Daily Iowegian will publish an Editorial Question of the Week on the Opinion page.

The Iowegian wants readers to think about the recent sequestration and automatic spending cuts. Some say the United States has a spending problem. Others say the United States has a taxing problem, where the wealthy are not paying their fair share.

So, the question this week is, "What say you: Does the country have a spending problem or should taxes on the wealthy be raised?"
