Sacrifice for Education

The elementary school and technical school both are now slated
for tons of public money to come their way.

I wish that these particular institutions, the public workers
who'll call these their work locations, AND the particular population segments benefited by this attention would be
truly grateful to the sacrificing tax payer, who hasn't yet realized just how financially painful the short-term future will be.

In economic times such as these, personal households are cutting back, doing without, turning off lights and heat and eating lesser quality food.....just so others can have facilities to be educated in.
This cutting NEEDS to become MORE severe as
the drain on personal households won't stop with just these
two institutions. Look down the road at what financial demands will be given on each and every taxpayer.

First off is the 2% social security tax reprieve these last two years. This ENDS in December 2012. Starting January 2013,
(and surely federal Congress won't extend again---they can't without totally bankrupting Social Security), worker's checks are going to be smaller EVERY WEEK! If a worker grosses $400 per wk, that is $8 per wk times 52 weeks ---that is over $400 or one whole week of work
that a worker WON't see for their OWN needs! That worker needs to
just hand $400 per year over for the public good after slaving 40 + and doing their hard time, and planning on retiring when they are at least 80 years old.

The power and light companies have already told everyone that
they want about $7 per month increase, that's almost another $100
per year that a worker WON't see for their own needs!

And it doesn't stop there!!! Should I go on?

Transportation is in it's usual inflationary mode again, and if
Iran doesn't get sane, any "war" could make transportation
unaffordable for many, many folk.

Which in turn, makes ALL prices, rent, basic medicines
----basic needs people use-----I'm not talking frills here like
going to a movie or anything.

Will wages go up? Probably not for the private sector worker,
which is about 80% of the Wisconsin population.

The inflationary spiril is beginning and the "target" is 10%
per year.....that's pretty high for a normal household to stomach.

I'll post again and continue.

But....if we hear one complaint from these two institutions
about payers should become livid.

I wanted to continue with what financial demands are going to be plunked down on tax payer's heads:

Federal Deficit----IT has GOT to be paid, otherwise,
America should change it's name to Greece.
And how do American's pay for this hole that
with entitlements is over $200 TRILLION ?

Sacrifice---plain pure sacrifice.

Not just SOME people.....ALL THE PEOPLE.

So to the public workers in Wisconsin who are
totally out-of-line with their selfishness,
YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BE SPARED the sacrifice that is necessary to keep this whole country solvent.

The Wisconsin issue IS a rights issue....a rights issue for Joe Average taxpayer to have an equal footing and equal treatment when the financial demands are plunked down on everyone's head.

It isn't fair for private sector workers to slave away and slave away and just hand over whole week's worth of income for people who think they should only work 5 hours per day.

And do you remember the summer of 2011?
This was when the deficit ceiling crisis was postponed in the halls of our federal Congress.
NOT ONE DEMPCRAT wanted to believe that they had to
start thinking about the they passed it off to the future.

Jan. 1 2013 automatic spending cuts kick in.
This was the summer's resolve. Bernanke names it
"The Cliff."
Who will not be receiving money from the federal government? Denfense is scheduled.
Who else? poor people programs. Will
churches be even able to help them?

And with the lack of concern about paying for
the huge $200 TRILLION with entitlements,
the whole country's risk rating will increase, which means the cost of our national debt will increase?

Right at a time of Bush tax cuts expiration!!!!!

Our federal income taxes WILL NEED TO RISE!

This means that Joe Average tax payer ---if he's lucky to still be employed during the impending resession, will be forking over more whole weeks of income for the public good.

And then there's the difficulties of state and local governmental finances! ObamaCare, if constitutional, will be a boat load of grief
for states and STILL 30 MILLION people will not have insurance!

State and local tax WILL HAVE TI INCREASE, TOO!

I just want the two schools--the workers there and the benefited there---to bend down and kiss the feet of Joe Average tax payer who is scheduled
to have one hell of a scrifical life for the rest of his life AND his children's life. AND DON't YOU EVER FORGET IT!

Thank you is not enough for what sacrifice is being asked.
