People of America, what have we come to? So many of the people today are stubborn and blame the president if higher taxes are considered. What you are blinded from is that a good percentage of those taxes are to help schools, something we TRULY need. How do we expect to prosper if we do not even take a chance to contemplate the fact that if we want to succeed as a nation, we need to support the source? The source is the younger generation! The schools! We need to improve the schools, but if you do not pay a few more cents of tax, we will not reach our goal to become a successful country. The drop-out rates are outstanding, the funny "coincidental" conclusion is that most of those who argue against raising taxes to support schools are those who dropped out due to a lack of good education.
