VIDEO ON MSN MONEY
More examples of how the current tax system let's politicians manipulate the laws to buy voters. Taxes should be revenues to pay for the services that the government provides. These services should be available to all US citizens equally without regards to race, sex, marital status, profession, income, sexual orientation, race, physical abilities, etc. They should not be available to only a select few from whom the politicians are trying to garner favor and votes.
In addition, the burden of paying for these services should be carried equally by all US citizens. This means that each US citizen should pay the exact same amount for these services.
Let's end the discriminatory progressive income tax system that started in 1913 now and replace it with a EQUAL TAX system that treats every US citizen the same.
If the revenues created by such a system is not enough to pay for the services currently provided by the federal government reduce the services provided. If still required then they should be borne by the states that elect to implement them. The only services required to be supported are those that are explicitly called for in the constitution. Others are those that are trying to appease voting blocks and redistribute wealth in order to do so.
Let me see if I have this right.........if I don't have enough money all I need to do is spend more of what I don't have to get back some of what I already had and paid to the government and they will give me some of the money back that they took in the first place. Well where do I sign up for this Ponzi deal of the day. Typical government thinking!!!
dont pay taxes? this makes no sense. msn demonizes "the rich" for finding ways to keep more of their money, but then tells the readers of msn(prob middle class to poor) that its ok to keep your money and pay less taxes?
msn you make no sense. msn says that when the rich dont pay higher taxes, its the reason for our huge deficits and unfunded wars. but i guess the middle class and poor not paying doesnt fall under the same scrutiny.
its obvious msn is promoting class warfare on purpose. shamefull
Aren't all these tax breaks that keep people bitching? Or is it just everyone likes their own tax breaks but not breaks for others.
