A few thoughts on raising taxes…
Last week Billionaire Warren Buffett told Congress to raise taxes on the wealthy. A lot of people think it’s a great idea. I don’t. Not because of some capitalistic greed ideology. Not because I don’t think they can spare it. They certainly can. But, here’s why:
Before we force anyone, in any income bracket, to pay more to this government, this government needs to be fixed. It’s not right or fair (a word the liberal left love to toss out) to make someone pay more for such a crappy product.
No one should pay more until Washington learns to reign in the obscene spending on programs, wars, and bailouts no one wants. And, that’s not to mention the congressional expense accounts that pay for their expensive cars, fuel, fancy meals, and other “essentials” that the rest of us pay for. I don’t know about you but no one pays for that stuff for me. Why should it be any different for them?
You wanna raise taxes? Fine. But, first let’s change some things so those new taxes don’t end up paying for stupid stuff.
