Gloria: Those who advocate tuition tax credits for parents whose children attend private schools maintain that people making no use of a government service should not be forced to pay for it. Yet those who choose to buy bottled water rather than drink water from the local supply are not therefore exempt from paying taxes to maintain the local water supply.
Roger: Your argument is illogical. Children are required by law to attend school. Since school attendance is a matter not of choice, but of legal requirement, it is unfair for the government to force some parents to pay for it twice.
Which of the following responses by Gloria would best refute Rogerâ€™s charge that her argument is illogical?
(A) Although drinking water is not required by law, it is necessary for all people, and therefore my analogy is appropriate.
(B) Those who can afford the tuition at a high-priced private school can well bear the same tax burden as those whose children attend public schools.
(C) If tuition tax credits are granted, the tax burden on parents who choose public schools will rise to an intolerable level.
(D) The law does not say that parents must send their children to private schools, only that the children must attend some kind of school, whether public or private.
(E) Both bottled water and private schools are luxury items, and it is unfair that some citizens should be able to afford them while others cannot.
i didn't understand Gloria's point.. Isn't water-example a counter argument for her own argument ?? What's her point ??
Can any one explain ??
Gloria's point is for paying tax... she just mentions "THOSE people who think otherwise" to make her point.
so A could be rephrased like this:
even though going to a private school is not a law, education is necessary for all, therefore nobody is exempt from paying tuition tax
thanks U2lover.. After rereading I am able to understand Gloria's point..
She is basically saying "everybody should pay school taxes', correct ?
Intially I thought she was saying "those sending their kids to private schools need to be exempt from taxes".. Her argument structure kind of confused me...
