I have an idea. They should make paying taxes optional. If you don't want to pay you don't have too. Just don't expect 911  to show up if you need them. And you can forget about using the postal services. And the highways are off limit too.

In Pittsburgh, bus drivers can make up to $90,000/year & the pensions have the city and county (all employees) on the verge of bankruptcy.

In Pennsylvania, toll takers make about $18/hour, and State employees can retire after only 20 years.

I can barely afford my taxes, and they keep going up.

Public employees have to realize  that we are not a bottomless pit of money!

There is a law of diminishing returns when it comes to taxes .......... when the drastic tax cuts in the 1920's went into effect, there were suddenly more millionaires. They quit hiding their money and revenues went up significantly!

      I am not a registered Democrat, so I can't.
