I don't care what your job is or how much you make, the government shouldn't be entitled to more than 50% of your income. This mentality that the rich will pay for all the poor spending decisions government makes has to stop.
It's our money, the government is out of control with spending and until it's held accountable we're all at risk. The focus is on the rich now but eventually their spending will exceed what the rich can cover and then it's going to be on you and me to pay.
Agreed, but how come every time someone talks about Tax Code Reform or a flat tax, the wealthy oppose it? The Ultra rich like Trump and Romney have ways around the code. It surprises me that Phil's tax attorneys have not worked that out. Romney paid far less than 14% in the last decade. He was making about what Phil makes.
There is a lot of waste and pork on both sides of the aisle in Government. Don't let them kid you that it is one side or the other, or it is just Medicare and Social Security. It is everywhere. The Tax Codes of both states and the Feds are filled with loop holes that corporations and even individuals get congress to sneak in. We don't have access to those either.
