It must be kicking in because my Internet company just added $2 increase in federal/state taxes amount over what I paid last month. Rates on many things go up, while people are still out of work, or have reduced hours, and most can’t make enough to match the rising costs. And this is before the Obamacare system fully kicks in.
Highly unlikely that the FairTax would pass with the present population in the US Senate and BH Obama as president … But this IS a congressional election year and there is enough on Obama administration for impeachment proceedings, just the Benghazi tragedy would do it.
It’s tax season. The yearly nightmare of trying to figure out the system and how to deal with the paperwork. Tax preparers, like parasitic vultures, are ready to charge you for preparing something no one should have to do.
The original sponsor of the FairTax in 1999 was the former representative of Congress from Georgia, John Linder, who up to the end of his time in Congress constantly tried to get the FairTax bill through Congress. He no longer is a member of Congress, but his crusade still goes on, as an article he wrote for Townhall.com demonstrates. It is probably the most extensively researched bill ever introduced to Congress in decades. Mr. Linder ensured that he got input from leading economists and co-authored two books about it. It has become widely supported, at least by the People – but still languishes in Congress. The main culprit in this legislative quagmire [a term that Democrats gave for the Vietnam War they initiated] is the business-as-usual, progressive-RINO US Senate. The bill would revolutionize the way government is funded that has been going on for 100 years, increasingly getting worse for taxpayers.
President Obama has shutdown executive branch services, but not the golf course at Andrews Air Force Base. To show how the commander-in-chief takes care of the troops that he expects to face dangers in his continued involvement in Middle East problems, the grocery store [PX] on that base is closed due to government shutdown. Service members and their families must shop off post and pay more for their groceries.
This president punishes others when he does not get his way, as congressional members, specifically in the Senate continue to support his outrageous spending, incompetent foreign policies, and continue a law that should never have passed – Obamacare. The federal government does not listen to the People because they are not capable of controlling their own lives. More people would have health insurance, paid for by employers if there wasn’t any income tax system, replaced by FairTax [ending the reign of the IRS] or even a flat tax [not more than 10% and no progressive tax]. Obamacare is going to force to let a percentage of their employees go and may even put businesses [small businesses] out of business, as well as increase the cost of health care and health care insurance. How does this help?
The people did not want [majority] Obamacare anyway. Senator Ted Cruz wants to make changes to the bill, but it is best to ditch it and never allow it to return.
The economy would be better off if: (1) Income tax system is replaced, (2) Obamacare legislation repealed, and (3) a bill/amendment passed that ensures a balanced budget occurs fiscally and reduces spending, especially overseas.
The following is a comment I left at Sodahead concerning the IRS and income tax system. It has to do with abolishing the 16th Amendment and getting rid of the most feared and hated agency of the federal government. It is time to end income tax at federal AND state levels. There are states that are doing just fine without it, and those states do not charge sales tax on FOOD. Levying income AND consumption tax AND excise tax and fees is DOUBLE TAXATION – taxation issues like this encouraged American colonists to declare independence.
In the myriad of scandals, including the horrific Benghazi incident that caused the death of Americans who fought for seven hours for their lives, their cries for help unanswered; the IRS scandal has become the forefront of the abuse of those that operate OUR federal government.
The IRS scandal represents the tyranny developed over many decades since President Wilson signed the bill that instituted the income tax system, formed the Federal Reserve and added the 16th Amendment to the US Constitution.
The US Senate seems to be coming to an agreement concerning the firearm ban that Senator Feinstein initiated, waiting for the opportune news headlines, to propose that would punish lawful citizens for the action of one person out of millions in the United States.
Teachers and professors are using our educational system to indoctrinate our children and the corporate media turns its head – focusing on hating firearms instead of those persons who use them as a tool for evil.
The real evil is the political tyrants and their mouthpiece in the form of mainstream national news. Today, headlines report about a standoff with a deranged person holding firefighters/medics hostage ending up with a SWAT team taking him out – but ignores at least five stories like the man who stopped a robbery in progress with a legally concealed firearm.
They claim it is because of “sensationalism”, but it really has to do with their personal views and ideology. Is it not sensational and commending that a fellow citizen stopped crime when law enforcement was not available or able to show up in time?
– Only ten weeks into his second term, Obama is making political enemies, a rogue nation [North Korea] not only threatens war but on Saturday [April 6th] the NK despot stated his country is in a state of war. Maybe it is time to call the fat little brat’s bluff. Russia’s Palin acts like he is worried, rightly so being so close to North Korea but he [as a KGB officer] was part of the Soviet Union that created communist China, North Korea and Vietnam. The Soviet Union was responsible for providing initial terrorist training as well. Unfortunately, it is not just Russia that will suffer the consequences.
