To the editor:

The article is appreciated about Senator Tom Brewer’s efforts to save the Nebraska Farm Industry from extinction from the horribly unfair property tax system currently in effect.

Thanks to Senator Brewer for working to bring the Nebraska property tax system out of the dark ages. The present system is killing Nebraska's farmers and farm industry which is the real backbone of Nebraska's economy.

Remember, when farmers can’t make a living, weeds and dust will soon be blowing down the Main Streets of the cities.

It’s time to change the antiquated system of taxing the farmer into poverty.

We need to cut the property tax, put the obese bureaucracy on a serious reducing diet, and start paying for government with a sales tax so everyone will bear at least some small share of the cost of government.
