Should people without children pay higher taxes?
This is the nonsense I came across this morning perusing CNN.
This idea is so ridiculous, I'm just flabbergasted.
So those of us who don't have kids for whatever reason, maybe it's choice, maybe it's fate. Should pay higher taxes to in essence support those who
have children. Maybe I don't have kids because I don't feel I'm in a financially reasonable position to provide an adequate home. Maybe I'm sterile.
Or I just hate people and could tolerate creating another one.
Now I'm not going to say that everyone who has kids is irresponsible, or can't provide for them for one reason or another. But there are a whole lot
of people out there who are.
I realize that this is just one idiots idea, and I haven't heard about any proposed legislation for it. But man, this got me heated.
Sorry I haven't posted a quote or snippet from the article, but I'm on my phone and it was hard enough to post the link.
What do you think ATS?
