Tax is way to high and at the same time national debt is beyond comprehension. Major red flag. Most of our consumer products are made in other countries.....red flag. Other things taken as a whole.....

There was a point when I was working and my company was very busy and I worked 7 days a week . The company slowed down and I only worked 6 and took home more money . I retired at 62 because my home and cars were paid for and I didn't need the money . Now the only taxes I pay are sales and property , and they still bother me .

Consider me a swing voter. I am on the fence between democrats or republicans.

Do taxes really support the people?

Do taxes support the election?

Can democrats support a unified city response?



If we look at states where there is a low rate of taxation we typically see a failing school system and crumbling infrastructure.

Taxes are nesessary, the real question is who should pay them?

The poor can't pay them and the wealthy find ways not to pay them. So it's usually the middle classes who end up paying all of the tax.

It makes sense to determine how much money a person needs to live comfortably, and the further above this you get the more you pay. That way the wealthy liberal elite end up paying for all of this socialism that the keep talking about.

Income taxes only go to one thing. To pay back the Fed for money that they never had that the government borrowed at interest. Under this system, the national debt will always increase because there is never enough money in existence to pay back what we owe. All we are doing is trying to pay off what previous generations borrowed by putting future generations that haven't been born yet into debt.

It's like a game of musical chairs. The only winner is the person taking the chairs.

sales tax as of this coming October will be 10%. its a crying shame in this country where there was no sales tax before


You(I, for example) pay 25 percent of my income to state/fed income tax. Of whats left, I pay 10 percent to property and then 8 percent everytime I buy something.

They are counting on nobody doing the long math...

The reality is that for every dollar you make 40 to 50 cents gets gobbled up in taxes...and what the F for. For a bunch of people that can't make their own way in a capitalist society where there worth is measured by their contribution(wealth=contribution...almost sounds socialist).

Taxpayers....REAL taxpayers are tired of propping up this crap. While I'm in the minority(i'll gather worms for cash to live in a backwoods cabin if need be), most fail to do the math and just continue to feed the corruption.




24c in every tax dollar goes to the military safe to say your 50% estimate is on the low side.

Another answer, how much tax is needed is directly proportional to how corrupt the system and people in it. A totally non corrupt system with no corrupt people requires no taxes, as everyone willingly pulls their own weight and provides for each other.

So the more taxes we need the more corrupt our society from top to bottom.
