“Tribune, great piece on school tax credits, but now my blood pressure is up. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. The government is broke, no more tax breaks for anyone, especially the well-off. If you can’t pay for your kid’s school, then they go to a public school like the majority of us send our children to.”

“Tribune, great piece on school tax credits, but now my blood pressure is up. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. The government is broke, no more tax breaks for anyone, especially the well-off. If you can’t pay for your kid’s school, then they go to a public school like the majority of us send our children to.”

“Great job on cracking the huge scams in the Private Schools Tax Credits program. That’s what a real newspaper is supposed to do. In your blizzard of statistics, you missed an important one. In private schools which accept taxpayer-subsidized tuition and have a high percentage of Hispanics, how much money goes to subsidize illegals?”

“What is all the hubbub about? So, the Republicans manipulated the law to make average low- and middle-class taxpayers foot the bill for their kids’ private education. What is so different from the GOP on the national level — the same sort of people who obstruct financial institution regulations, universal health care, and energy reform?”

“Abolish all tax credits. There are many others besides the one for education. (It’s) interesting why the private school tax credits are so much higher than the ones for public schools! When we have a leaking financial boat, plug the leaks.”

“Are the residents of Gilbert really worried about a tax that will add 25 cents to every $100 spent? I guess it would be better for employees to lose pay, even though we are not responsible to make policy.”

“Let’s stop and think this over. Electric cars that can go 100 miles between charging. Sounds like a real winner, I think not. If we have developed a battery to propel the vehicle 100 miles, we should also be able to develop a generator that will charge this battery as the vehicle goes down the highway. Think about it!”

“How many Republicans have been shouted down by Democrats? Dems, you started this fight. If you don’t have the stomach for the exercise of freedom of speech, perhaps you should try Iran or Venezuela.”
