Taxing tuition is disgusting
My philosphy is that you support youth and empower them to take control of their lives and their futures. That future includes when you are old.
People should have more responsibility for providing for their old age, not downloading it onto youth.
Mish has a post about Pittsburgh planning to tax tuition.
The one comment got my attention:
Denver Randy: It is so obvious that the next 30 years will pit younger, pension-less workers against a rapidly aging population, eager for their promised pensions. To assuage labor and other disputes promises were made that can never be kept. Until the younger generation votes with the regularity and consistency of their elders, the folks with the pensions will get paid and the youngsters will pay the price.
I want this crap fixed now. I don't want to end up the scapegoat for the gross irresponsibility of governance in this matter, but, I am in an age group that I fear will pay for this irresponsibility with more then just see benefits cut. I fear that by the time I get there the level of resentment towards seniors will make being a senior dangerous.
