WHEN WILL YOU STOP WORKING FOR THE GOVERNMENT ?
If you're an average American taxpayer, you would have to work almost 185 days - more than half the year - to pay the estimated costs of federal, state, and local government. That breaks down like this:
14 DAYS - for national defence, and
13 DAYS - to pay interest on the national debt, then you'd toil
29 DAYS - to pay for Social Security and Medicare, followed by,
56 DAYS - for state and local taxes and regulations. And finally
29 DAYS - of work to pay the cost for other federal programs, everthing from peanut subsidies to foreign aid.
Even then Washington would not have enough. So the government would borrow what amounts to three more days of your wages - money that will have to be repaid, with interest, in the future. You have the next 180 days to earn the money to feed, clothe and house your family.
AREN'T YOU TIRED OF THIS SLAVERY ?
Then lets get behind our leaders and legislators to replace the Income Tax and the IRS, with the
" NATIONAL RETAIL SALES TAX "
DO IT NOW !
" The day after the election, I announced that my goal before I leave the Congress is to tear the income tax out by it's roots and throw it on the side of the road. (and) To replace it...(with) a broad-based consumption tax.
I'm the first Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee who does his own income tax, and it's almost to the point where I can't do it. It takes me probably two days. Fifty IRS agents live in Exxon's headquarters in Houston year-round. There's something wrong with a tax system based on that. The cost of enforcement and of litigation, which each of us pays for, is enormous.
A consumption tax gets at the undergroud economy. If we could get at that $100 billion to $200 billion, that's hals of our deficit. The tax should also be lifted at the boarders to give an advantage to our exports. If we can remove 15% to 20% from the price of our products, we get a tremendous edge on foreign compitition. And it should be charged on foreign products. That would be $300 billion a year."
