While reading Fred Ash’s letter to the editor in the Nov. 12 Salt Lake Tribune, I thought he made some good points. But I also thought of an easier, more efficient way to raise money for education that would be fair.
How about a head tax? Let’s tax the people who use the system.
Sure, I don't have children in the system, but I realize we must have education for our children and am willing to pay a small tax toward that. But why not tax the people who use and abuse the system?
I say you can get a deduction for two children, and after that it is pay to play — no deductions for any after two. If you cannot afford to raise children, quit having them.
Why should single people without kids, couples without children and seniors who already paid for their children to go through school pay for the families that use more and give less?
