Gore's Education Plan

September 03, 2000

Re "Gore Promotes Tax Breaks to Ease College Tuition," Aug. 25: Any investment advisor worth his salt will tell clients, especially those with incomes less than $60,000, that the first thing they need to do is invest for their retirement. Trying to save for college tuition for two children for most families is like putting toothpaste back in the tube. That's why there are student loans. Are there loans available for people who are entering retirement? I don't think so.

I'm sure high-income families--you know, the wealthy that Al Gore always talks about--will love the tax credits so that they can use government money to send their kids to Stanford, USC and the elite Eastern schools. For the 20-somethings who are struggling to make ends meet, Gore is saying keep sending in those tax dollars.
