I suppose the government has to figure out how to pay for all the wonderful programs that exist today and are in the plans for the future. Check the link for the full break down of the tax hikes. I never have understood how people in this modern day could vote for anyone who wanted the government to take more of their money to squander .... However I also understand with the growing presence of government in every facet of our lives it takes allot of people on the pay roll not to mention all the new arrivals that need money to survive..


Hillary Clinton has made clear she intends to dramatically raise taxes on the American people if elected. She has proposed an income tax increase, a business tax increase, a death tax increase, a capital gains tax increase, a tax on stock trading, and an Exit Tax, and more (see below). Her planned net tax increase on the American people is at least $1 trillion over ten years, based on her campaign’s own figures.

Hillary has endorsed many tax increases on that would hit middle income Americans, despite her pledge not to raise taxes on any American making less than $250,000. She has said she would be fine with a payroll tax hike on all Americans, she has endorsed a steep soda tax, endorsed a 25% national gun tax, and most recently, her campaign manager John Podesta said she would be open to a carbon tax. It’s no wonder she said her $250,000 tax pledge was merely a “goal.”

I honestly don't understand the no new tax group. Our government needs income to do things. How long do you think we can keep Social Security afloat if we keep taking from it instead of new taxes? How long will wars last when we cant afford to keep them going because we never raised taxes to keep them going?

How are we going to pay down the debt we accrued during the downturn without new taxes? Our gas tax which pays for transportation infrastructure has not been raised since 1993 and I know our infrastructure costs have not gone down since then.

So will her highness allow us to take any of our money home?

as usual it will be the middle class that gets hurt the most, the rich can afford to pay more taxes without affecting their quality of life, and the poor pay no taxes so tax increases won`t affect their quality of life,but the middle class will have their quality of life altered by having to pay more taxes.

Here's a novel idea - SPEND LESS.

The economy hasn`t even recovered from the 2008 crash a lot of people are still bad off financially this is not the time to be raising taxes. It`s always easier to spend less than it is to make more,the government needs to cut out a lot of the waste and subsidies.There is plenty of room to cut things without affecting anyones quality of life.

Our government needs income... correct they need income for their purposes but would need much less if they did not rob from one to pay for another... Social Security is a classic example. Collect all the government IOUs and the bloody thing would probably be solvent until the sun dies. Until there is an accounting method in place that stops, say the highway funds, from being used for some new just thought up program the insatiable appetite of the bloated beast will never be quenched until we are all in the poor house waiting for our government hand-outs.

Do less, then.

SS was intended to be self-funding. If it is not, then the problem is people are receiving funds they didn't pay in. Self correcting problem: simply don't pay out to those who didn't pay in.

How long will wars last when we cant afford to keep them going because we never raised taxes to keep them going?

Easy solution: fight wars to win them and claim spoils. Problem solved.

Stop spending TEA monies on non-fueled vehicle projects. The fund was flush before the idiotic light rail and alternative transportation projects, which contribute NOTHING to the fuel taxes, started siphoning money from the fund.

Let me ask you, if you find yourself overspending your means, do you demand a raise or trim you expenditures? If it's the former, how's that work out for you?

Thing is, Clinton won't get any of it done without congress.

So she will get it done.

The plan is for everybody to work for nothing.

The employer will pay a flat fee per employee.

All Citizens will get a government check based on your social status.

As usual we are expected to make do with what we have but the goverment can just add on a few taxes. The idea of lowering costs has never crossed their crooked minds.

We don't have a revenue problem. We have a growth problem and a regulation problem, both of which could be rapidly resolved with competent leadership in Washington. A nation simply cannot tax itself into prosperity.

Thank you for taking the time for the rebuttal... Again it is a different age; as if I am living in a space warp with people wanting to turn over their money to an entity that is bloated and in many cases fraudulent.

How many times have we seen the headlines of government fraud and waste..? Obama care had to hire 10,000 new IRS agents just to manage the program; as per some of the headline way back when. Those agents get paid. How many millions were given (843 million to 2.1 billion) to the friends with contacts to create the program that was FUBAR for how long ? Military programs that should cost less than half the actual roll out cost with the old 500$ hammer hidden in the cost... But hey that is the way the government pays and does things.. I could send a few wives I know to manage programs better than some of the program heads in government.. At least they would not allow IRS investigators shaking down and harassing political opponents...

If the paper pushers were cut by 50% and the redundant programs were either eliminated or instead of 15 put into one program I would bet billions would be saved simply because even the GAO found in 2013 that there were 162 areas where agencies are duplicating efforts, at a cost of tens of billions of dollars. That is not fraud just stupidity... Put it this way.. If I ran my business like the government runs their business I would not have a business.

Since Americans are becoming poorer, these new taxes will force wealth from the top down to the bottom. Forced trickle down economics.. What's Hillary's new slogan.. Together We're Stronger, or something like that?

I seem to remember someone, obama? saying we can spend ourselves out of the recession or debt or something.

Crazy.

I seem to remember that...wasn't the dept when Obama took office around just shy of 11 trillion ? The debt is now projected to be 20 trillion when he leaves office in spite of record tax collections taken in.... It currently stands at 19 trillion plus... But hey lets' all pay more taxes so they can waste more.. 20 trillion will be the death of us unless the impossible happens.

Except that's not how it ever works out.

Tax from the actual top and jobs dry up creating more at the bottom that need those taxes sent to them because they now cannot do for themselves.

But usually what ends up happening is those like my family who are working hard to make ends meet ourselves get taxed more to pay for those who don't do for themselves. More of our kind fall lower creating more who are on the bottom and making the problem itself bigger.

The middle class is shrinking and its a combination of those two reasons.

The real solution is for government itself to spend less.
