Something’s Not Right

According to the Quad City Times, April 8th edition, nearly half of U.S.  households will not have to pay any federal income tax.

That just doesn’t seem right. 

Why should one half of the country pay the cost for the other half?  I understand that the people who make more money should pay more in taxes, and I fully support that concept, but that doesn’t mean that 47% should pay nothing!

Politicians get elected by lowering taxes.  Politicians think that rebates and credits will stimulate the economy.  So politicians reduce national income and increase spending.  This is a problem.

It has gotten out of hand.  We have an enormous national debt.  We need to reduce spending and increase tax income.  We need to be financially responsible as a country.

Everybody who has an income can pay something.  We should be sharing the load, not getting a free ride.

    I cannot imagine trying to run my family budget the way our government has chosen to run our country’s. Wow.

      Apparently, American politicians have their own way of doing things. No business, or family could run their budget like our government without going bankrupt.
