Several months ago, I wrote a letter about America's grim future. Here are some solutions: Pass a balanced budget amendment. We all have to balance our budgets. The only exception would be if the country were attacked. Pass a flat tax, with no deductions. Taxes should be progressive, but everybody must pay some tax. Medicare should start at 68 and include means testing. A $500 surcharge would start at $60,000 and increase $500 for every $15,000 in additional income. All homework papers must be signed by parents. Parents must meet with teachers every two months, and they will get report cards on signed homework. No one can receive unemployment payments or food stamps if he or she is obese or doesn't have a high school diploma or GED. Both are under their control. Limit terms for members of Congress and set one six-year term for president.
Please think about your grandchildren's future.
