If you want zero property taxes and all the benefits, that does not balance properly.
Koaj wants to benefit from the higher wage base where he lives yet does not understand that with that higher wage base come other higher costs..real estate, taxes etc.
Move to Sedalia Missouri if you want low property taxes, but doing so would also cut his wives salary in half too..if you could find a job in the first place.
When I lived on the main line in PA 18 months ago, the wage base was MUCH higher than here in Phoenix, but the other costs such as real estate, taxes, general cost of living were also higher.
but yet the federal tax rate ignores where you live but takes a big chunk of change regradless.
as well as saying 250K is the line in the sand that makes you "rich".....250K in NYC does not make a man rich.
but to be more on topic there is a balance that needs to be struck..........everyone benefits from the services (obvioulsy depending on the service some more than others) but yet the higher wage earners pay most of the bill.......is that really fair?
so someone who paid their way through college and lands a good job in NYC and is saddled with college debt upon graduation should pay the lions share for the drop out who was unmotivated by school and choses to work at 7-11 so he/she can buy some weed and play Warcraft all day.
there is something wrong with the system
