To the Editor:
It is disappointing that Paul A. Volcker and Peter G. Peterson call for solving our debt problem by cutbacks in Social Security (for those not at or near retirement) and health care benefits.
While they do urge that we reform our tax system, they are silent on the actual rates paid by our highest earners.
