Thank Taxes?

What?  So two women (60% of women voted for Obama in VA) have nothing better to do then make a video about how grateful they are that we are taxed! Who does that?  Really,  who does their taxes and then sits around (eating Bon Bons) and says, “Look how great our tax dollars are being spent?”   Dare I say……Statists, Liberals, Big-government types…or those who don’t pay any taxes and get a handout from the government…perhaps?

First, so much to say, but the argument from the left is that the “radical right-wingers”, like Glenn Beck, protest ALL taxes.  We all agree that taxes are necessary, but the question has always been what taxes, what level, and what the tax dollars are being used to fund.  So, it’s a bit of a strawman argument to attack those protesting on April 15th against excessive taxes and claim they are anti-tax.  But it easier and gutless for the liberals to not think and just react (in liberal fashion!)

Secondly, these ladies are from Alexandria, VA (mainly government workers!)  Also, notice that most the things they like are not a Constitutional duty of the federal government! The premise of these two is simple: if the government doesn’t do it then it won’t get done!

Would we have bad food without the FDA? Would we have electricity without government and taxes?  Would your kids not learn without government-run indoctrination centers we call public schools? Could trash be picked up by a private company and paid for by others means than taxes?  Would we not have any road signs without taxes? No jogging trails…OH…the humanity!!

I think all of this is just bunk!  These women probably have no idea what they pay in taxes or even understand why people are upset over taxes…they actually think it is because we have to pay them at all!  Some of the best ideas for government revenue is found inside the conservative movement (cutting taxes raises for more revenue, fairtax, flat tax, etc.)

These women want to make April 15th a holiday! Puke!

Obama on being over-taxed

“We are over-taxed as it is,” Doris said bluntly.

Obama started out feisty. “Well, let’s talk about that, because this is an area where there’s been just a whole lot of misinformation, and I’m going to have to work hard over the next several months to clean up a lot of the misapprehensions that people have,” the president said.

He then spent the next 17 minutes and 12 seconds lulling the crowd into a daze. His discursive answer – more than 2,500 words long — wandered from topic to topic, including commentary on the deficit, pay-as-you-go rules passed by Congress, Congressional Budget Office reports on Medicare waste, COBRA coverage, the Recovery Act and Federal Medical Assistance Percentages (he referred to this last item by its inside-the-Beltway name, “F-Map”). He talked about the notion of eliminating foreign aid (not worth it, he said). He invoked Warren Buffett, earmarks and the payroll tax that funds Medicare (referring to it, in fluent Washington lingo, as “FICA”).

I’m not surprised that Obama struggled with this.  Deep down he knows he is going to have to raise taxes..BIG!  So, he has to come up with a come back to this obvious feeling and question about being over taxed!  Perhaps, he really thinks we are under-taxed, which would explain his 17-minute dribbling attempt to make normal, freedom-loving Americans think they should pay more.  Otherwise, he would simply say, “Yep, your over-taxed and I will try to let you keep more of your hard-earned money!”  But…he doesn”t believe that.

Liberals are so funny…they are never honest about their intentions!
