This letter is also being sent to Matt Bevin and Jack Conway. No candidate for governor has addressed the problem of not funding teachers’ pensions. Vague ideas has been floated for state employees, but there has been silence regarding the huge shortfall in teachers’ pensions. Here is a way to solve the problem: Impose a one tenth of one percent tax on all income received in the state. This is how it would work: For a middle class family earning $100,000: One percent is $1,000, one tenth of one percent is $100. For a corporation with profits of $10,000,000: One percent is $100,000, one tenth of one percent is $10,000. For a person in poverty earning $20,000: One percent is $200, one tenth of one percent is $20. (less than $2 per month).
This issue must be resolved. Teachers are dedicated, hardworking people who are in the forefront of improving Kentucky’s workforce, the source of future income for the state.
