$600 BILLION IN TAX INCREASES!!! – June 12, 2009
How does this make you feel?
NEW YORK (MarketWatch) — Swindlers, con men, and thieves could siphon off as much as $50 billion of the government’s planned stimulus package as the money begins flooding the economy in coming months, according to David Williams, who runs Deloitte Financial Services Advisory and counsels clients on fraud prevention. http://www.marketwatch.com/story/stimulus-fraud-could-hit-50-billion?siteid=r…
How does this make you feel?
Earlier this month, Vice President Joe Biden said some stimulus-related scams had already happened and that some mistakes were inevitable. President Barack Obama said Monday that the White House is trying to make sure the stimulus money isn’t being ill-spent.
Government + money = corruption
The clean and sure way to stimulate the economy is to stop taking the money away from the people who earned it and are the legitimate owners. They will spend it and stimulate the economy. That cuts out government and corruption. That speeds up the process – no middle man. That cuts the expense of running a bloated bureaucracy. That tax decrease allows for further tax decreases because of less expense to the government to run big programs.
“At a time when everybody is tightening their belts, the last thing the American people want to see is that any of this money is being wasted,” Obama said.
Everyone EXCEPT OBAMA is tightening their belts. Obama is spending like a drunken sailor or a teenager with Daddy’s credit card. Besides the government programs, Obama is living like a king with his family.
While Obama is blowing through America’s money and China’s, California is talking about legalizing marijuana so they can tax it and selling prisons not oil, the IRS proposed taxing business cell phones as a benefit and Democrats are pushing a health care bill that will add $600 BILLION in TAX INCREASES on top of all the other tax increases on things like cigarettes, etc. http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=aqLNecbH0dcg
Even the Democrats are acknowleding the extraordinary costs.
Asked whether the cost of a health-care overhaul would be more than $1 trillion, Rangel said, “the answer is yes.”
Democrats plan to REQUIRE employers to provide insurance to their employees. Guys, these are employees, not their adopted kids! Why should any company be forced into the charity business? If I decide to start a business, why should I be responsible for anyone else’s health insurance? Am I responsible now for providing them a home, because that is just as important as health insurance, maybe more so? Must I provide them with transportation because that is so important in life? Do I need to provide them with a babysitter? How long before I have to pay for their funeral if they die while working for me? Will I be forced to pay for their gasoline to run their vehicles? Where does it end, if the basis is “importance” of the benefit?
Americans must find their voices and stand up LOUD and CLEAR. Tell the government to butt out of our lives. Once this stuff is in place, it will be very difficult to repeal. Consider that employers, once forced to provide health insurance, will simply lower the salaries and hourly wages they offer. The Democrats are also planning to penalize anyone who does not purchase health care. This is getting too much like a dictatorship. The best solution is to keep the government out of our personal lives, and our health care is completely personal.
