LTE: reader envisions payback to boomers

I can’t say that I know the whole story of the defeat of the Belvidere school referendum. However, I have an observation for some of the Belvidere boomers who are happy their taxes didn’t go up.

As a Gen Xer, I will find it absolutely hilarious in 10 to 15 years, when these kids will be working and will form the foundation of the tax base.

What will they do when the government needs to increase taxes to support all of the boomers’ little perks like health care, Social Security and prescription drug programs? It will be kind of like football and the chess club, but on a grander scale. Then, we will tell the same people who voted down the referendum to kiss our collective working-class behinds.
