It is a new year and some stuff never changes. The Democrats remain the party of tax and spend, the Republicans remain the roll-over and take it up the ass party. I cannot write this too often -- we do not have a revenue problem in this country, we have a spending problem. So how do the politicians attack the issue? That is right, $41 in new taxes, $1 in spending cuts -- a decade from now. We all know that will never happen.
Edit: here is the issue in pictures.
Hey! Good news! You are going to get a 2% tax increase. I bet you did not know you are one of the "rich". The payroll tax cut was allowed to expire. So every single working person just took a 2% tax increase. Make sure you blame the people responsible -- you know, the party that looks after the "little guy" and the middle class -- President Barack Obama and the Democrat Party. You just took a hit of about $750 to $1,000. I am sure you agree, the Government can spend your money much wiser and better than you can. You could not use an extra $75 a month, the Government needs far outweigh yours, I bet. .
I'll type this slow so you Democrats can understand. If you have $1,000 less to spend, how will the economy improve? That is $1,000 less you and every one of your neighbors cannot use to buy appliances, groceries, toys, consumer goods. $75 a month means you eat out less often, see fewer movies. You skip that ball game, play or concert. If you do not buy stuff, stores don't sell stuff, factories don't make stuff, trucks don't deliver stuff. The economy stagnates. Add in the higher taxes on small business owners and corporations and they have less money to spend on equipment, jobs, etc. On the other hand, the Feds will use that money to build a walkway under a road for turtles in California! Better yet, they will give it to Egypt and Libya to fund terrorists to help them kill Americans!
BOHICA Mofos. You get what you voted for. You wanted higher taxes and a sluggish economy. You wanted your healthcare premiums to double. You want to see manufacturing slump, unemployment continue to stagnate. You wanted higher energy prices and more illegal immigration. You can have it all!
On the bright side, the taxpayers will fund your fuck sessions making sure you don't get knocked up. You Obama voters are just too stupid to grasp you are getting fucked by the government at the same time.
Oh, this post probably was not safe for work.
BTW, how can the Senate Tax Bill pass the House when under the Constitution all revenue bills must originate in the House of Representatives?
