In her letter “Unaffordable for seniors” (Feb. 4 and TribLIVE.com), Beverly J. Myers states that instead of property taxes, sales and earned-income taxes should pay for schools. She's afraid that senior citizens will lose their houses because of property taxes. If seniors didn't prepare financially for their “golden years,” it's their fault, isn't it?

Certainly, if seniors had children, they attended the very schools paid for by those taxes she so vilifies.

Ms. Myers surely must have voted for Obama, since she's looking for seniors to keep all of “their” Social Security money, rather than hand it over to those greedy little children in her school district. I see her as just another entitlement snob who wants to rob future generations of what she and her family so heartily enjoyed.
