The Tax Man Comes Calling

April 15 may have come and gone, but the sting of Big Government’s tax bite is always present. Congressman Lynn A. Westmoreland 3rd District of Georgia has the following to say about our new Health Care spending machine (AKA ObamaCare):

“Just this week we learned that the Joint Committee on Taxation – Congress’s official scorekeeper – estimates ObamaCare will raise taxes by $15.2 billion over ten years beginning in 2013 due to limits placed on the medical expense deduction. What’s more appalling, the committee says this will affect 14.7 million middle-class taxpayers earning less than $200,000 a year. Clearly this is not looking out for the best interests of American taxpayers, much less future generations.”

More than ever I like the idea of a flat tax. It is simple, it is fair, and everyone contributes without any loopholes. What could be fairer? 10% for the Government, 10% to God and Church, 10% to a savings plan, with the remaining 70% left over to living.

“Let me tell you how it will be;
There’s one for you, nineteen for me
‘Cause I’m the taxman,
Yeah, I’m the taxman.”

  1. I agree 100% on the tax issue. Our current tax code is ridiculous, let alone the amount of money it costs to administer it. I would say either a “flat tax” or a national sales tax makes more sense then this crazy system we use now.

    Govt. just keeps growing and growing, taking more from us for its own uses – well, mostly for some type of special interest usage. I don’t think this is what our forefathers envisioned some 200-odd years ago.


  2. A National Sales Tax or VAT (like in the UK) is another way to go. The folks that enjoy spending our money will argue about which system is more fair to the lower class, however God only asks for 10% so that is something to consider as well.
