Property Tax Bill
Original post made by BJ, Birdland, on Apr 1, 2009
My 401(k) is in the tank while government employees have a guaranteed pension. How come the government employees have significantly better retirement programs than their bosses (the taxpayers)?
I have even heard that most government employees have free medical insurance once they retire! I certainly do not get that. It seems to me if the government employees paid for half of their medical coverage when they retire, the money saved in taxes could probably pay for half of the medical insurance for all the retired people in California since it seems like government employees make up about 50% of the job market. With the downturn in the economy I hear of lay-offs from just about every sector, major lay-offs, but not in government so government employees will make up a larger percentage of the workforce.
I think we have given the government enough of our money. This has to stop. I cannot support giving any more money to our government. I simply cannot afford this proposed parcel tax. No on the additional parcel tax for me.
