Voice vote, all ayes motion carried. Submitted by Doug Martin, School Board Secretary Dear Readers: "Sharing the Burden" is a slogan often heard during current budget talks. But, with the pro- posed draconian budget cuts, only Bert and Ernie, our Community Healthcare Centers, union workers, pregnant women and children, our children's teachers, college students, Cancer, Alzheimer, and Parkin- son Disease patients, our wonderful veterans, and the homeless are being called upon to "share the burden". How about having the top 2% wealthiest people in the nation help out with paying their fair share of taxes? How about having huge cor- porations pay their share of the burden? How about closing their gener- ous tax loopholes? How about clamping down on offshore bank accounts that "hide" their accounts from taxes? How about taxing those outrageous multi-million dollar bonuses that top executives are collecting? How about getting those major banking institu- tions to pay back their bailout? Let's all "share the burden"-not just the poor and middle class!
