Which is why I believe in the flat tax, with no loop holes.
You seem to be forgetting many middle class's between rich and welfare cases. To retort on your remark there are also many rich elites who are lazy,
some of the lazyest of them all. A specially those who are multiple generational and do not break their backs earning their wealth. The more common
middle class citizen is the one who is being screwed over th worst.
You seem to have forgotten the blue collar laborer. Those who have spent their entire lives working only to come short on the poverty scale, there are
a lot of factors involved also, like living beyond ones means, employment, and other things as well. I agree to a point on a fixed flat tax, with
variables. If a corporation wants to outsource there production let them, but tax the hell out of them in the process. Other examples inhareance
taxes, middle class people pay out the nose in inharetnance taxes, as well as a few more well off's, but the elites all get off the hook.
Only reason for this reply was to correct the way you worded that remark on "let's give it to all the lazy people who don't want to work", There
are plenty of working people who deserve a larger break. To those who are lazy and want to live off the system, they better have a good reason for
needing assistance, other than that they can either find a job or live in the streets because our welfare system in this country isn't going to last
long at this rate.
SSI was originally intended for the widows and widows of war vets who were lost at war. It has now become a free ticket for illIgals and freeloaders,
it has to stop. It's just one step in the road to our economic recovery.
Large corporations should be held accountable for everything they do. Bankers and banks also. That pretty much covers the elites.
Enough said, pardon the selling and grammar, I'm currently outside and logged in through iPhone.
