I resent the "scare tactics" being utilized by the special groups in their advertisements against Gov. Pataki's proposed spending cuts.
Our ancestors built this country with discipline and hard work. Why do people think that someone else should pay their way? My parents paid for my education by working hard. I paid for my children's education by working hard. I helped care for my parents after they retired; we didn't wait for the government to contribute.
Gov. Pataki is going in the right direction with his cuts in state spending. This must be done now so that our children have a chance for their future. I paid for one set of children. I don't think it is right for me to have to pay for another set of children through my taxes.
