Letter: Those who don't pay taxes should

To the Editor:

I believe Gov. Pritzer has a good idea (everyone should pay their fair share). I believe the 50% of the people that don't pay income tax and are probably the biggest user of government service should pay their fair share.

I know lots of people in the 50% that pay tax and they are getting tired. They will probably retire soon and hopefully will only move to Florida and pay some tax. They can also leave the country and pay no tax.

I believe there will be less people cruising and a surplus of cruise ships. The ships could easily be turned into condoes and sold to people who will make them their legal residence and sail the world tax free.
