How can we seriously be ok with increasing taxes when the government has shown they are such poor stewards of our money. Big company bailouts? Fail. Waging wars in the Middle east, Fail. Obamacare? Fail. Not doing crap about illegal immigration. Fail. No child left behind, Dept of Ed, Fail. IRS, graduated taxes? Fail. Clinton's everyone should own a home? Fail.
I'm not picking sides here. Obama failed, Bush Failed, Clinton Failed. They are all wasting my money and your money. Get rid of the IRS, start a fair or flat tax. Bring the troops home. I'm not passive on war, if they start getting froggy we'll institute our nuclear disposal program in their capital cities.
Welfare? If you can't pass a drug test, you don't get welfare. You may be able to come pick up some food, and maybe we'll put you in an apartment, but I'll be damned if you get a check. And a free bus ride. You need a job.
And taxes... yes, Everyone pays. 15% sounds nice. Or maybe, we pay a fed sales tax. I was shocked the last time I did my taxes at 85k/year (that's filing family, not single, my wife doesn't get paid in cash to be a homemaker) to find out HOW LITTLE I PAY. To think that people who make less than me are paying nothing, I'm amazed at how much the rich must already be paying to keep this government afloat.
Oh, and back to foodstamps. Why the hell can someone use foodstamps to buy caviar or steak with caviar but they can't buy soap and toilet paper. FAIL.
Until the government can stop WASTING and GIVING away my money, I'm not supporting ANYONE paying more tax, except those who pay little to none already.
