The future of my grandchildren

With health care costs rising for a family of four, utilities, food, and gasoline costs spiraling out of control; how can a two income household save for a college education? There is no money left to save. No money left for swim lessons, basketball, football or soccer camps. It's No to the pro-sports game or decent family vacation. Can't! Forget about grandparents helping. They went broke in the economic deep recession. Can't help at all.

A tax increase on a family of four with an income below $ 130000. means they have to cut back on what? BASICS.

Ask the top two percent to give up an expensive vacation for a less expensive one; pay a little more in taxes so that families making less can survive.
