Give se­nior cit­i­zens school tax for­give­ness

The Morning Call - - TOWN SQUARE A PLACE TO BE HEARD -

State Rep. Frank Ryan must have had a “se­nior mo­ment” when he pro­posed re­plac­ing the muchde­spised school tax with an­other tax on re­tirees, i.e. pen­sions.

Give us a break. We have paid th­ese school prop­erty taxes all our lives. Some of us never had chil­dren. Those who did no longer have chil­dren in the sys­tem. Yet we still pay.

Se­niors in this coun­try are hurt­ing. Strug­gling month to month to keep afloat and not be­come a bur­den to so­ci­ety.

Find a way to tax those who are liv­ing the Amer­i­can dream on gov­ern­ment as­sis­tance. They are given more help than the se­niors.

Politi­cians con­tin­u­ally ask for do­na­tions and our votes.

Please do some­thing for the se­niors. Think tax for­give­ness.
