Letter: Lawmakers must do more to help out middle class




This letter is in response to Ed Woods’ letter to me on Feb. 10.

No, I am not a high school student. I am a 24-year-old adult who has been paying taxes since I was 16 years old. (That’s eight years — yes, I know how to count too.)

I have made mistakes in my life but those are mine. I am currently going to school at one of those low-cost schools you made mention of because I finally don’t have to claim my parents’ income on my FAFSA (in case you don’t know, that’s how you file for any kind of aid whether it be loans or grants: it is the same form and is used to determine your eligibility for scholarships, student loans AND/OR grants).

As for blaming my parents, you seemed to have misunderstood.
