“My subjects wish for me to increase their taxes!” whines King Hussein Obama I. Not understanding that the people who actually pay taxes are getting fed up, “DUDE D*ck*” thinks people really want taxes raised.
What Obumbler is really saying is that a majority of the people who do not pay Federal taxes think it’s just peachy to raise the taxes on the minority.I have a deal for him. If he removes all exemptions from taxation, requires everyone to pay something, even if only a mere 5%, then I will go along with the plan. Right now 51% of the sheeple do not pay Federal taxes. Let’s simply adopt H. L. Mencken’s dictum that, “the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.”
After the freeloaders, tax cheats, and serial welfare scammers start paying taxes maybe the American people will get real about life. While we are at it, why in Thor’s name, are we tolerating a system that actually rewards malfeaseance on the part of people who are too damned lazy to work to support the boatload of illegtimate babies they bring into the world?
Would I support a tax raise if everyone had to pay it, even those making below the current limit? (by the way it’s $5,700, before you ask). Get rid of the automatic exemptions. Get rid of the “Earn Tax Credit.” Get rid of all the devices and gambits that Congressional thieves and socialist central planners use to let people slide off the tax rolls. Go after the tax cheats. (That would get rid of half the Oabama cabinet, an unintended bad delightful side benefit.)
After everyone is paying to feed the Leviathan, we can see of those “80%” still want taxes raised. My bet is the answer will be either NO or HELL NO. As long as someone else is paying the bill, why the hell would anyone care what the tax rate is. When they pay the bill, it will be a dofferent story.
