SME,Nice try. I am fine with that. Have the government right me a
check right now for what I have put in and I will not bother them for a dime
when I retire. Of course you missed the point. Republicans are all
for "responsibility" and "paying for your own" as they define
what that means. My point is we all pay taxes for the "common good" and
that has never been in proportion to our usage.
Fred44, I think we can come to an agreement here. You don't
pay to educate my children, and they don't pay for your retirement. Deal?

Chris B,Could we apply your logic here in Utah and have those who
are having children faster than rabbits be responsible and pay to educate those
children? A family with 4 children in the school system making $80,000 a year
will pay less than $1,000 in state income taxes which all go to public
education. A couple making $80,000 a year with no children will be paying over
$3,000 a year. Using your logic, why penalize those who are not
using public education by making them pay more for public education than those
families straining the system to its breaking point?
@mcclark,There comes a point in everyones life(or at least there
SHOULD come a point in everyone's life) when we say that "my problems
are my problems. My bills are my bills and I need to pay for them"Unfortunately too many people have the liberal victim mentality that because
Mitt Romney is rich, he should have to pay for my bills.Mitt Romeny
paid millions in taxes last year. And the year before. And the year before.
When Mitt Romney drives on the road and you drive on the road, does
Mitt's car do 100 times the damage simply because he is 100 times richer
than you?No?Then why should he pay for your car
damanging the road. You should each pay for your cars damage to the road.Drop the victim mentality and get to work paying your own bills.
What if any of us ran our fiscal houses like our "leaders" run the
government? Go on wild spending sprees, max out your credit cards and write NSF
checks all over. When we are arrested for grand larceny, we can tell the judge,
"We don't have a spending problem, we have a revenue problem!
Before the Bush tax cuts, we were running a surplus, ever since we have been
running a deficit. What to do? What to do?
Good. As painful as it is to stop spending, when we're spending too much,
the answer is to stop spending.Not spend more.
