Hell, I wish they would make it permanent and just do national sales tax for revenue.

Money talks, but it doesn't listen.



You have to ask, though, where all the extra money that the government doesn't get from payroll tax anymore, is going to come from?

The money is a scam- that print it from thin air and it's at a breaking point.
More money in the pockets of the working class would be a nice way to ride it to the bitter end.

They should tax capital gains, not living wages or other neccessities.

The tax should come from profit. That means that if the government can increase everyone's profitability, then the government gets a stronger economy and more money.

That would go a very long way in gaining approval from the waning ones on the right (we know you exist, you've posted on here) and gaining approval from the left leaners. However, the pessimist in me is yelling, "If it SOUNDS too good to be true, then IT PROBABLY IS." I'd be damn surprised if this actually goes any further than just a pitch, the government is NOT going to give up that much revenue just like that.

Meh that’s bullcrap, we were born into this system, we don’t have a better one, just the losers beg for anarchy. If such a thing existed it would not last long we would be killing people in the thousands begging for this system to come back would be common place.. remember the good ole days

What if we stopped paying billions of dollars into welfare for illegals? It wouldn’t hurt if the House stopped spending millions of dollars on manufactured hatred, that money could go to better causes, like the situation we’re in now.

Of course the deranged Dem cult is against it.

Social Security and Medicare which, let's be rational here, will have significantly less immediate importance if Coronavirus is as brutal against elders and the chronically afflicted as experts are saying it seems to be. Meanwhile, the consumer confidence and spending driven stock market has absolutely immediate importance now and later to anyone with gainful employment as well as *most* retirees.

I’m going to pass on this one.
It sounds good in theory but not in practice.

Sort of like how New Zealand, your home country, doesn't?

A country has to have gains before they can be taxed, no?

I suppose they could start by trying to tax Peter Jackson on his profits from that film series about midgets who love jewelry.

Actually, NZ is REALLY business-friendly and practices free market capitalism.

Something some of their citizens don't seem to understand, although they have no problem bragging about their freedom index as a country.
