Letter: Don't blame the welfare state: it's cheap

WITH reference to your fair tax editorial, higher-rate taxpayers not only pay considerably more in absolute terms than low earners, they also pay proportionately more of their income too. Given that the high- earner is paying for many services - health, education - that they probably do not use, aren't they already paying more than their "fair" share?
