Tax the rich more

Letters, Normal

The National

I SUPPORT the letter “Tax the rich and MPs more” (Sept 14) by Andy Powa.
The writer raised some very important points.
Papua New Guineans can be divided into three categories:
* High class – comprises of MPs and the rich;
* Middle class – comprises of lowly paid public servants such as teachers, nurses and policemen; and
* Low class – comprises of unemployed and grassroots.
Unfortunately, all the three classes pay the same tax.
This has affected people in the last two categories.
This is unfair.
