They'll never be satisfied until they have all of your disposable income in their hand to redistribute so that everyone is equally miserable.

Naturally except them...they are of a different class, the do the distributing.
Yes, those that sacrifice to teach our children are after all of our disposable income. I hope this was just a failed attempt at comedy.

The ones with kids in public school, and the ones who are staunch advocates of keeping the education system public are the ones who should pay higher income (and/or property) taxes. The rest of us who have no kids and/or don't use the public schools should rightfully receive a tax cut.

I would as well. Since I don't use marijuana, it wouldn't affect my wallet at all. I look at it this way: the schools have been going to pot for years, so why not legalize pot?

Exactly right! I can't emphasize enough how overly burdened the states' budgets are just from public education funding alone. Almost 70% of our property taxes go toward education. As a nation, we spend more government money on schools than almost all other countries in the world! This is a HELL OF A LOT OF REVENUE we pour into the school system ... yet, the results are substandard, and the liberals always cry for more funding. It's a vicious circle that will never end as long as education continues to be run, managed, and financed by the government.

We should change methods and curriculum first before we dish out more money for these teachers. Otherwise, people will keep sending their kids to charters
Your make-believe fantasy world seems an odd, yet comical one to live in.

Would you also apply the same logic for those who aren't married? Why should singles shoulder a heavier tax burden just because of a legal status?

This sounds like fake news to me......

Quote:
A Phoenix television anchor is claiming that the #RedForEd movement of striking teachers is actually an underhanded maneuver to legalize recreational marijuana in Arizona.

On Tuesday, Fox 10 Phoenix (KSAZ-TV) host Kari Lake tweeted an image of a T-shirt to back up her idea. The shirt showed a marijuana leaf overlaid on the state of Arizona and the words #GREENforED. A version of the design that Lake tweeted is for sale on the independent T-shirt marketplace Teepublic.

Just looking at azcentral, the walkout tomorrow will close 1000 district and charter schools statewide with 850,000 students not in classes. There could be 50,000 or more teachers and supporters marching on the capitol.

We've received word in Chandler that schools are closed both Thursday and Friday.

This is why it pays to be employed at a large corporation. Many of them are stepping up and offering reimbursements for daycare to employees who are being affected by the walkout. Sure a lot better than sticking the taxpayers with the bill!

A pot tax would not make a big difference. Colorado gets about $200M in taxes from pot. If you adjust for the somewhat higher population in AZ one might predict $250M here. That comes to a little over $200/student. Not much.
