"What If 50 Million of Us Stop Paying Taxes?"


Reprint....just in time for tax season!

                                                    
The U.S government states that there are 12 million illegals here (Most say there are more than 30 million) and sending them home would be impossible, even though they costs us $300 billion a year in Welfare, WIC, Section 8 Public Housing, Food Stamps, free public education and free medical care, plus the cost to incarcerate the large hispanic criminal element.

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.

Bravo! I have said the same thing many times only to be poo-pahed by
pseudo intellectuals of a liberal bent. We need to remain skeptical of all politicians that are not constructively working to get this country back on track for Americans.
I like the Tea Party more everyday
and hope they do not cave in to the business as usual folks.

You're right. The politicians who have been there for years have lost touch with the concerns of the "working man and woman". The Tea Party congressmen and senators are being portrayed as radical when in fact they are only representing the concerns of working people.

While I agree with most of what you say here I will disagree with looking at someone for their nice car or other things they have. Alot of us got our "things" because we earned it and worked for it all of our lives. Why take what little we have left? And please don't tell me that I should be forced to sell my antiques or diamonds (most of which I inherited from my mother and grandmother) before I should be eligible for any assistance. I own my own business now and don't need any assistance but there was a year and a half there where I considered it and even applied, only to be told that 35 years of paying taxes amounted to NO health care help (in spite of having two heart attacks) and 12 dollars a month in food stamps. Some people looked at the things I had - nice clothes and shoes and furniture and actually probably thought I should sell it all before I applied for a dime. Why lose EVERYTHING I worked for to fix a temporary situation and to be able to collect a little assistance that I paid for in taxes 100 times over? Please stop judging everyone for what they have - you don't know and cannot possibly know when or how they acquired it all.

Anon, I can only say this about that. There are millions of people who gaming the tax system. Millions of illegals do it by working for cash. A few months ago i drove my seven year old minivan over to a food bank to deliver cans of soup and a box of citrus. While there a large Mexican family drove up in a Cadillac Escalade. The father had a i-phone strapped to his belt and one of the kids was listening with earphones to an IPOD. They went into the food bank and grabbed their share of free food.
I live on a fixed income, have electrical outlets in my house that don't work, my kitchen is old 60's appliances, I live with one bathroom because one toilet doesn't work. I have COPD but have to do my own housework and yard work and I pay premiums and hospital and doctor co-pays for my medical care. Today I just finished my taxes and I have given Uncle Sam and the State of Arizona over $6,000 dollars in taxes.
Is it fair that the Mexican family can drive a cadillac, own iPods and I-phones, cut their grocery bill at the food bank, and are getting $2,000 dollars per child in child tax credits, are paying no income tax and enjoy a better life than mine....simply because they have learned to "game" the system?
Even assuming that Cadillac family needs that free food at the food bank, is it fair for the government to reward people who breed more children that they can't afford and encourage further breeding through giving them "bonuses" come tax time?
I'm sorry that you had a temporary hard time but, until the government starts auditing the massive fraud waste and abuse in both our social services and in our tax code, we're going to go flat broke.
And you know who's going to suffer the most? It will be the honest people who pay their taxes and refuse to game the government give-aways.

I have for years now been advocating for a tax revolt. I lost my business three years ago to an injury that has left me disabled. I just watched a video of obama's aunt, an illegal alien, who said she not only receives full disability but full insurance, food and rent benefits that she says the United States owes her. Owes her?? I have worked forty five years and paid more than my share and was told in order to receive disability I would need to hire a lawyer (6 to 8k) to get the benefit. I can't tolerate watching the news hearing the lavish lives our politicians live while passing bill after bill giving more of my money away to people who don't deserve it. My wife and I are now struggling to pay our bills on her income alone, well I am just disgusted with it all.
I wouldn't have a clue about how to organize such a revolt but I can and will work 24/7 to help get one going.

JustCommonSense said...

Ken, I wrote an earlier blog entry called "A World Upside Down". It addresses the inequalities of today's government give away program. It's not just Obama's aunt.
For example, I served with the Air Force 22 years. Our enlistment contract promised life time health are if we serve 20 years. Then, Congress said, nope, we can't afford it anymore. Now I pay for my medical premiums and hospital and doctor co-pays.
But, if you're an anchor baby, or if you refuse to work and beg for welfare and medicaid, you get it absolutely free with not even a co-pay, same for dental. I have none, they get it all free.
So...if you serve your country for 22 years they screw you...but if you plead poverty, refuse to take even menial work...or if you invade the country illegally, you get all kinds of freebies.
To change anything you've got to throw the bastards out, including the old Republicans and Dems who tolerate this fraud, waster and abuse.

Hmmm… you do have very interesting and insightful ideas. It does feel like you’re being “cheated” or “robbed” if you look at it closely. If there really is a lot of “free loaders” who benefit more than the taxpayers, the government should really do something about it. Yes, of course, they would like to reach out to the poor, but if means being abusive and tolerant, then that isn’t right anymore. However, I don’t think taxpayers should suddenly boycott in paying their taxes. Not only is tax evasion illegal, but think of all the benefits you get from it too and how it would be affected. The roads are all well-paved, the water system is clean, you’re sending kids to school and you get to enjoy maintained public facilities like our parks, you wouldn’t all that to go bad, would you? I say, be the change you want to happen. Inspire others not be a freeloader yourself, there’s no hope in progress that way.

I agree that you have points. There are people who are benefiting from the taxes we pay unfairly because they are the ones who actually evade paying taxes, pay less than they should, or don’t pay taxes at all. I would be lying if I said that I didn’t think of it as unfair too. However, just like Sunday, I don’t think we should stop paying our own dues either. That is illegal and well, it somehow bothers my conscience.

It’s true that there are people who seem to benefit more than those who pay their taxes properly. However, can we actually blame the poor for not having the capacity to pay for taxes? To pay for their own shelter, food, and healthcare? Maybe there are some isolated cases where they falsely claim themselves to be poor, but I don’t know, I guess I’ll just think of it as helping people indirectly.

A Modest Scribler said...

Kathy, thanks for your comments. But if it were only that simple; helping the poor that is.

Our system goes far beyond simple charity. Our tax system is rigged to help the rich and poor and punishes everyone else.

For example, if you breed responsibly, have only the children you can afford to feed, educate and medicate I consider you a responsible citizen.

However, when "breeders" have more children than they can afford to support, and know Big Government will go ahead and reward them for their mistakes, you create an incentive for being a poor citizen. That's just wrong...and it gets worse all the time.

And yes, there are millions of devious people who do game the system so as to avoid paying their fair share.

i have never used support but i don't pay in either. they waste money and my money could be better spent protecting from the collapse

Did you ever think about why some of those people have to get those free programs? Could it possible be that those Latinos and other minorities don't make the astronomical salaries that whites make in this country? Perhaps, this is the only way to get their share of what has been a gross differential in this country for way too long.

Joshua Wood said...

Congress would only Agee to over 250000 bc that means they won't be the ones paying it. Just the president and corporations would be in that tax bracket. Congress is full of selfish Republican lazy ass rich people who disgrace our ancestors.

Lacey Leigh said...

Wow. I haven't read something this ignorant in a very long time. First of all, just because someone is Hispanic doesn't mean that they are illegal. Someone should tell you that you can't tell by looking. Second of all, Medicaid does not pay for dental care any more, and hasn't for a while. You cannot spend food stamps at fast food restaurants. I know this for a fact. I was on Medicaid and I have had food stamps. Did you know that most people who get government benefits only receive them for a year, and then get off - and 86% get off in 2 years. By themselves. Like me. I lost my job and I have two children. Should I have just let them starve while I was looking for work - which isn't as easy as you think. Nearly every company requires an online application. I went to the library every morning after I took them to school and stayed there until it was time to get them - 8 hours later - and all I did that entire time was look for jobs. And what would actually happen if no one paid taxes? Who would pay the police and fire departments? Who would pay to fix roads and bridges when they need it? Also, lets look at where your taxes go. If a person makes 50 grand a year, and 7 dollars goes to welfare and 4000 dollars go to pay for corporate subsidies. Without those subsidies, most companies would go out of business quickly. If that happened we would be an instant 3rd world country. I don't really know why I am even writing this though. There is no way that everyone who has read this agrees with you, and I see an awful lot of posts that were removed by the author. That's kind of sad. People need to be challenged, but you don't seem to be able to handle that.

A Modest Scribler said...

Lacey, in the immortal words of Dan Akroyd, "you ignorant slut". You pulled that crap right out of your ass...(love the $7 bucks for welfare and 40 percent to subsidizing business. The rest is gruel and not worth a response.

Medi-Cal in CA hasn't covered dental for adults for quite a few years so Lacey Leigh does have that point. But she totally loses all credibility by not even acknowledging that there is a lot of fraud when it comes to government provided charity. And yes, it is charity. I have benefitted from the tax payer provided charity and have been grateful to have that safety net there for when I couldn't work. But it angers me to see those who abuse our country's compassion. Lastly, Lacey Leigh doesn't seem to realize that despite all of our taxes, due to our country's enormous debt and ever increasing burden of illegals, we are on course to become a third world nation.

A Modest Scribler said...

Thanks, anon. Most states still do provide free dental under medicare, including Arizona which is a pretty conservative state. I was astounded this morning to read they are now expanding state medicaid to pay for chiropractors...boy that's a rip off from the get go.
