Letter: The real source of wealth

In response to E.J. Dionne’s column in the May 20 paper, quoting Elizabeth Warren’s statements: “You built a factory out there? Good for you. But I want to be clear: You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for.”

Without those factories, there would be no jobs to pay the taxes that built the roads, educated the people, and paid for police and fire protection.

If it wasn’t for business to create tax dollars, government would not operate.

Government only recycles wealth produced in the private sector.
