This phrase you hear from Congress all of the time “Tax the rich.” What does it mean? It certainly doesn’t refer to the person who has 10 million in the bank and who doesn’t work. They are talking about wage earners who get paid a lot.
The really weird thing is, 40 percent of the population pays no tax at all. They get to live here free (they don’t make enough money to pay taxes). The highest wage earners pay most of the taxes (god bless them).
Has anyone ever said, screw the taxation system and let's have everyone pay two month’s wages or work on a government chain gang to satisfy your government obligation? I do not get this “tax the rich” solution. If you are truly rich, you don’t need to work and what taxes are you going to pay?
People get rich in other countries and move here to retire. We are not taxing them or any of the truly rich.
If you are poor, you get a free health care, free food stamps, free college education, and free welfare. You don’t have to pay your fair share. Let the rich pay your bills.
Congress is so set on helping the poor. Everyone needs to pay into the system, tax wise. 40 percent of the population paying no taxes is absurd. Either pay with cash or labor.
Let’s tax the poor and not feel guilty. We have taxed the rich enough already; all they do is move to a country with a lower tax base. We need revenue from those who are a captive audience. The poor are the people who get the greatest return. It doesn’t cost them a dime to live here.
Of course, if your neighbor can't pay his mortgage, Congress will help them with that also. Do you get the feeling that deadbeats, have a lot of political pull? I can't quite figure that out! It has to be my money they are spending; they don't have any that they can call their own.
Why should some people get a free ride just because they claim that they can’t pay for it? Rome built its roads with labor from people that had no money to pay tax.
