I will never understand how people can be so ignorant as to constantly claim that poor people should pay more taxes, when the wealthy have increase
their wealth something like 170% in the last 20 years.
Its the same thing when the amount of people now using food stamps gets brought up. Are there people who CAN afford to not use them but do? Sure I can
agree with that.
Most people don't WANT to use food stamps. These days, after generations of inherited debt, lower take home pay, higher taxes, higher costs of living,
some people literally depend on food stamps to feed their children.
Its sad these people get lumped together as lazy freeloaders, a lot of those people are some of the nicest, hardest working people you will ever
I really don't think taxing millionaires will do much to solve the problem. When has throwing money at a problem ever worked?
Asking someone who makes millions a year to help people who barely make 20k a year isn't asking so much is it?
If those people have a little extra cash after paying their bills and necessities, wouldn't it help the economy as a whole if more people are spending
I think the extra cash from those more wealthy would be better put to use out in the economy, rather than existing as a digital number in somebody's
The only way i think things will get better is totally reworking the tax system. Not adding amendments, or removing loopholes, get some funding
together, and create a system that works for everybody that can't be taken advantage of.
