Today I Became a Republican
39.6% tax increase is supposed to only affect the wealthy. But as
software engineer, married to an electrical engineer, I don’t find
myself “wealthy”. And faced with working full time for uncle Sam, I
am shocked. Two years ago I stopped working to have children. Now
that it is time to return to work the government is saying my household
will pay 40% in taxes. It would actually be cheaper to “live in sin”.
The tax savings of being single but living together would pay the
house note, taxes, and insurance for a year. Last time I checked,
keeping your home paid for was good for the economy.
I view this as punishing women who choose to have a family and a
career. Yes you can become a nurse, a DBA, or a broker, but be
prepared that if your husband does the same then all of the ladies'
income can go to pay joint family tax bill.
Next, I ask why are
we punishing financial achievement? It takes a lot of work to make
money especially in this economy. I believe in a flat tax. If
churches can make it on 10% why can’t Uncle Sam. I guarantee that if
everyone rich or poor paid 10% then poor would be more motivated to get
rich and the churches would have more to do “charity work” for the
No refunds, no credits, no loop-holes, no deductions.
You owe 10% today. States should follow TX and pay taxes on what they
buy. If you can’t pay the tax then you just don’t buy it. Do you
believe in National Health Care? Then please mark “National Health
Care” on your tax filings and submit your donation to the public cause
along with payment of your tax bill. Employers should not have to pay
taxes for creating jobs. I hired you, you are now making money. That
money will be taxed. I don’t owe money for creating a job. Are you
concerned about the elderly? Then care for your parents. Are you
concerned about retirement ? Then start a side business or invest
which helps the national economy.
39.6% tax rate - The British of colonial days would laugh.
today I became a Republican. Left unchecked the Democrats are going to
create a flat rate paycheck for all jobs. If they have their way,
we will all get to keep 10% of what we make and every dollar above that
will go to support those whose 10% doesn’t cover their needs.
