CommentsJoseph, The taxes we all know about are but a FRACTION of the actual tax burden. There are so many hidden taxes in the system now that I seriously doubt that anyone can enumerate all of them.
Speaking of HIDDEN, try this filthy trick on for size which caused me to contact my Rep. With the following.
Here we go again:
Would you please check into this.
I received the following alert: (a Portion of the alert)
MAP-21 INCLUDED IN THE FOLLOWING BILL:
"to reauthorize Federal-aid highway and highway safety construction
programs, and for other purposes."
WHAT THE HECK DOES A HIGHWAY BILL HAVE TO DO WITH GIVING THE IRS THE POWER TO TAKE AWAY OUR RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS?
Officially called the "Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act," or "MAP-21," this bill goes WAY BEYOND anything to do with highway safety.
If it passes, it could give the IRS the power to:
Accuse Americans of delinquency of tax payment without due process
Revoke their passports and travel rights
Place the accused in a centralize database
Authorize the removal of their right to own a firearm
I for one am tired of amendments and other bills being added to necessary legislation. IF the addition has nothing to do with the bill to which it is attached, it has no business being in there.
Every time an important spending authorization such as funding the military or Social Security for example, those authorizations are loaded down with legislation which has NOTHING to do with the basic legislation.
I seriously doubt that the practice is Constitutional, but for a certainty it is dishonesty at the highest level.
Thank you for considering these matters,

You are just giving Ms. Botox another idea to increase revenue.

If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. If it stops moving, subsidize it
An ever growing government must by necessity grow in expanding its revenue (called taxing to the uninformed) and therefore can be very creative in methods for taxing and names for said taxes. Since the phrase “cut spending” is not found in any dictionary or book owned by politicians, the only recourse is to increase revenue. Government makes Robin Hood look like an amateur. Frederic Bastiat was correct when he called taxation legalized plunder.More...
