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.”
