  • My father in law figured with the new taxes he would be paying in over half his income to taxes. He is moving his company out of the country to cut costs and to protect all he has worked so hard for. He doesn't work 18 hour days to give more than half to a government that says he is greedy. My fil is very charitable he just finds it very unfair. Imagine if any of you had to hand over half of what you made? You make 8 an hour but only got to keep 4 bucks? He already pays more than his fair share. This is ridiculous.
