lquadland10 good stuff.facts and figures

to those making over $250,000 I am sorry but taxes are inherently unfair to soemone unless they are consumption taxes and done for the public good.

I am for kids and making them the best for our future. That being said in my case I have no kids and my parents sent me to Catholic school 3-12. I am a municipal worker hence not a rich man If the cost of educating a student is say a nominal $5,000 per student inflation adjusted. Thats $45,000 (3-12) + $130,000(26 years) + $10,000 re coop school nyc tax(1,000 per year X 10)= $185,000  

I do not drive yet am hit for taxes to build and reconstruct roads(gas tax and tolls maintain the roadways).
