Reprint....just in time for tax season!
Following that logic, there are approximately 50 million Americans actually paying all of the taxes which run our government: What would happen if, next April 15th, the entire 50 million of us just sat on our checkbook and refuse to write a check to the IRS? Would the government then say "oh, there's too many of them, we can't do anything about it".
Keep in mind that, of the 300 million Americans, only 50 million are paying all the bills. The others are enjoying a total free ride. Sixty million are now on food stamps and many of them have been on food stamps for their entire lifetimes. Millions more collect welfare, WIC, free public housing, have never paid a dime in premiums for their free medicaid coverage and actually use free medicaid coverage to have even more babies to up their government take!
The IRS kicks in even more "welfare" through child tax credits; the IRS ponies up thousands of dollars per "poor" family even though they paid not a dime in taxes for the entire tax year!
Most of the working 50 million still paying taxes can no longer afford to take their kids out for fast food but the "poor" use their food stamp credit cards at fast food chains every day of the year!
While the "poor" pay no premiums for their medicaid coverage the working 50 million pay out a $1,000 dollars a month for their health care...if they can afford it! Medicaid even pays for dental care for the "poor" while the working 50 million can't afford it!
And the government refuses to even audit these "poor" to see if they are driving a late model car, have an I-Phone and a large screen TV!
So, think about all of this come next April when the IRS is awaiting your check. If the government is incapable of finding the fraud, waste and abuse in social service programs, if they can't deport 12 million, or 30 million illegals, what chance do they have if 50 million taxpayers say "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore" and just refuse to pay their taxes!
At the very least it will make the government start looking to see if there just might be some "cheating" going on in our social service programs.
Post Script: According to the Organization for Tax Fairness, if Obama were to tax all millionaires at 100 percent of their income it would only pay 6 percent of Obama's deficit spending.
WORSE: According to the Organization for Tax Fairness, if the Federal government taxed everyone who makes over $250,000 dollars at a 100% tax rate it would only pay for 38% of Obama's deficit.
