I don't think the average conservative is against taxation. What we are screaming is THE TAX CODE AND METHOD NEEDS REFORMED but not to punish law
abiding citizens! Personally I support the Fair Tax which basically does away with income tax and the IRS and uses an amendment to the constitution
so the gov cant raise it without consent of the people.
Certain things are not taxed and luxury items are taxed the most. This would truly bring about the rich paying their *fair share*, they are after all
the ones that can afford such items!
Poor people would pay very little tax and still have assistance programs....programs where the horrible waste and fraud is cleaned up!
Point in example: In my state, every person on public assistance for families with children get 3, count them THREE letters via the us mail for every
written correspondence sent. So if they send out a mass mailing about a single issue, EACH recipient gets THREE letters...... and there are ZILLIONS
of things like this.
The medicaid racket is just sickening! I know a man whose son was born with no eyes. Through all the programs out there they are actually fairing
pretty well, they have access to most things he needs. So, why is a *vision test* required every yr for this recipient? the young man HAS NO EYES!!!
Yet the gov is mandating the gov to pay for this....to ensure he still qualifies
the bottom line is you and I are paying for this kind of thing,
all through the system there is stupidity like this and GOSH what a lot of paperwork and people get paid for making sure this young man does not grow
And dumbest of all...even though he has no eyes whatsoever...he still has to re certify every so often (every 2 yrs I think) and go through a whole
battery of stuff...to make sure he is REALLY disabled, paying many people for services in no way needed....Since the family qualifies for all the
benefits out there, it is the tax payer paying the gov to provide many services not needed by anyone, paying gov workers very well to do so....and
charging ridiculous prices....
I mean even if you deem a vision test be needed every 5-10 yrs..how much should a agency bill for a visit where they take one look and the test is
over? then you have all the benefit programs workers that must be paid to collect this paper and shuffle it around all the different agencies the
family gets the benefits from...to other workers getting paid to shuffle papers....
And you think the fraud is found out and punished?? not by a long shot
How many things like that prevent those truly in need from having the funds available to them?
Clean up the hundreds of billions going to this kind of BS and there would be more monies for all the programs!
It is not just the poor milking the system, it is also the gov itself! In order to grow bigger government...
The point being our current tax dollars are not being spent wisely at all.....
